For Thursday, Westchester reported five new COVID cases in Rye. Here are all the City of Rye numbers:
476 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
94 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 382 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
5 new COVID-19 cases.
Managing the rise in COVID through the holiday season will take “continued discipline,” said Rye guy and County boss George Latimer. “If you refuse to wear a mask you fly in the face of reason and science.”
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.
