5 New COVID-19 Positives in Rye; 2,254 Deaths in Westchester – Wednesday, April 28, 2021

Westchester - Rye NY COVID dashboard 04-28-2021

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.

For Wednesday, April 28, 2021, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers via the County COVID dashboard.

1,424 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
41 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 1,383 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
5 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.
