Westchester - Rye NY COVID dashboard 12-29-2020

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

For Tuesday, December 29th, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers via the County COVID dashboard.

664 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
108 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 556 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
16 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.
