ALBANY – The COVID-19 positivity rate for the Ossining yellow zone focus area hit 9.93 percent on Wednesday while the Newburgh yellow zone focus area reached 8.48 percent, the state reported Thursday.

In contrast to Newburgh, the City of Middletown’s rate was 3.01 percent.

State and national officials have been concerned that with the holiday season upon us, COVID-19 case rates would increase, and they have in the last week. Officials are concerned they may spike even further in the days ahead. That is in contrast to the one percent rate in much of the state once the virus spread was brought under control this summer.
