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 (although this week his second briefing is expected to be Friday). 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.

Note, the County was unable to release COVID numbers on Wednesday due to a computer glitch.

For Thursday, December 3rd, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers:

435 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
91 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 344 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
19 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.
