On Thursday, Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his last COVID-19 briefing for the year. He warned of an expected spike in COVID cases in the wake of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. “We know the numbers have a good chance of getting a lot worse in the next few weeks before getting better.”

For Thursday, December 30th, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers via the County COVID dashboard.
