More than 1,000 new COVID-19 cases were reported over the weekend in Westchester as the number of active cases and infection rate continues to surge across the county.

The county Department of Health was reporting 1,088 newly confirmed cases in Westchester on Monday, Nov. 23, with more communities designated as COVID-19 “micro-clusters” due to the rise in cases.

There are currently 4,808 active COVID-19 cases in Westchester, up from 3,515 a week ago, 2,252 two weeks ago, and 1,513 cases three weeks ago.

“There’s no reason to sugar coat this … We’re seeing a serious rise in infections, and the governor said earlier (on Monday) that he saw signs that yellow zones were heading to the orange and red category,” Latimer said.

“The numbers are not good. We’re seeing a solid two-month rise in COVID infections.”

Latimer noted that the positive infection rate in Westchester hit 5 percent over the weekend, after hovering at or below 1 percent over the summer when the county and state “flattened the curve.”


“We’re tripling the number of active cases in three weeks,” he said. “We’re hitting numbers that we saw in May and there is no reduction in sight as we keep seeing a rapid rate of growth in these cases.”

More than a million have been tested for COVID-19 in Westchester, resulting in a total of 47,262 positive cases since March. There have been a total of 1,500 virus-related deaths in the county since the pandemic began.
