Westchester - Rye NY COVID dashboard 01-27-2021

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 daily COVID-19 counts for Rye and Westchester County for the foreseeable future.

On Wednesday, the State did announce to elimination of most of the Yellow and Orange Zone restrictions across the State – including Port Chester’s Orange Zone and all the Yellow Zones in Westchester (including a bit of Yellow Zone that had creeped into Rye, just adjacent to Port Chester).
