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.
For Monday, February 22, 2021, Rye has 30 new COVID cases and the County crossed over two million COVID tests administered.
Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers via the County COVID dashboard.
1,092 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
81 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 1,011 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
30 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 reopening.
