ALBANY – The rate of new positive cases of COVID-19 in the region continues to rise, and Governor Cuomo said Sunday that there will be further increases between now and January because of increased due to increased socialization. “The only question of how much and how fast is up to you,” he said.

The Ossining yellow-zone on Friday was 10.96 percent. That compared to the Newburgh yellow-zone at 7.97 percent and the Rockland County yellow-zone at 3.41 percent.

When the vaccine is ready, it will first be distributed, expected in December or January, it will be for high-need populations, but it will be six months at a minimum before it is widely available, the governor said. “We simply cannot afford six months of sustained increases in cases.”
