COVID positive rates remain high in Hudson Valley

ALBANY – Port Chester is the only COVID-19 focus area in the Hudson Valley that is in the Orange zone with 10.27 percent positivity. Peekskill is in a Yellow zone with 9.68 percent positivity, while Ossining, also in a Yellow zone, had 8.93 percent positivity on Thursday.

The cities of Newburgh and Middletown, both in Yellow zone focus areas, were neck and neck with Middletown recording 7.07 percent and Newburgh recording 7.04 percent.
