Westchester - Rye NY COVID dashboard 05-28-2021

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 Friday, May 28, 2021, Westchester reported the following City of Rye numbers via the County COVID dashboard.

1,456 total COVID-19 cases since inception;
10 active COVID-19 cases (this assumes the remaining 1,446 have run the average two week contagion cycle and are no longer active);
1 new COVID-19 case

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.
