Long Island reported more than 10,000 new positive COVID-19 cases over the weekend, with more than 4,500 in both Nassau and Suffolk. 

In Suffolk County, 5,688 new COVID-19 cases were reported over the weekend, bringing the total to 113,943 since the pandemic began, according to the state Department of Health. There were 4,838 new infections in Nassau as the total rose to 102,584 as of Monday, Jan. 11.

The number of new cases is the highest of any county in the state outside of New York City.

New virus-related deaths brought the total to 2,453 in Suffolk and 2,482 in Nassau, up from 2,410 and 2,452, respectively, on Friday, Jan. 8.

A total of 2.11 million COVID-19 tests have been administered in Suffolk, with 2.08 million administered in Nassau.

The number of COVID-19 patients hospitalized on Long Island is down to 1,517 after peaking at 1,614 on Tuesday, Jan. 5, though it is still fewer than when the virus was first peaking in April when hospitals were reporting more than 4,100 patients being treated for the virus.

Approximately 0.06 percent of Long Island's population is hospitalized, with approximately 75 percent of the region's hospital beds still available.

There are currently 1,579 Long Islanders hospitalized with the virus up from 1,420 a week ago, representing 0.06 percent of the population, and roughly 77 percent of the region's available hospital beds. There are approximately 700 of Long Island's 812 ICU beds occupied, leaving approximately 19 percent still available.

If Long Island finds itself in danger of hitting its 90 percent hospital capacity rate within three weeks, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has vowed to shut down the entire region.
