On Monday, Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his COVID briefing by telephone. He reported the County’s new COVID dashboard “was frozen” for a few days but that it is now fixed. The County is still hoping to get city and town level data on hospitalizations and fatalities from the State to add to its dashboard.

For Monday, December 28rd, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers:

648 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
99 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 549 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
36 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.

Important to note expanded reporting now shows fatality data from all nursing homes in the State, including The Osborn in Rye.

The COVID-19 numbers:

Fatalities of Westchester residents: 1,652
Fatalities at Westchester nursing homes – The Osborn Home in Rye is reporting six (6) confirmed COVID-19 deaths and six (6) presumed COVID-19 deaths thru December 27th (that’s no new confirmed deaths since the prior update). There is no data from Rye Manor or Vienna Senior Housing.)
