For Wednesday, Westchester reported five new COVID cases in Rye. Here are all the City of Rye numbers:
367 total COVID-19 cases since inception;

With the pick-up in COVID, Latimer has moved his COVID briefings to two times a week, Mondays and Thursdays. Because of Thanksgiving this week, the second briefing was held on Wednesday.
