Remember that Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer moved his COVID-19 briefings from daily to a once-a-week on Mondays. So no briefing Tuesday through Fridays, but we do expect to continue to post weekday COVID-19 counts for Rye and Westchester County for the foreseeable future.

For Thursday, October 22nd, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers:

270 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
30 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 240 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
2 new COVID-19 cases

Just like everyone else, county executives look at the NY State COVID-19 tracker for county and state level statistics on the pandemic and at the NY State regional  monitoring dashboard to see our progress towards continued reopening.
