The NYC Department of Health released the following in mid afternoon through a tweet:

“”#COVID19 cases continue to grow at an alarming rate in 8 neighborhoods in the city.””

ZIP codes include:

  • 11223: 6.72%

For days now there’s been great concern over these neighborhoods. Until today, they were referenced as the following: Gravesend/Homecrest; Midwood; Edgemere/Far Rockaway; Kew Gardens; Borough Park; Bensonhurst/Mapleton; Gerritsen Beach/Homecrest/Sheepshead Bay; Flatlands/Midwood; Williamsburg.

“We’re also seeing in these numbers significant increases in localized clusters from Brooklyn, Orange and Rockland counties and the Southern Tier,” said the Governor. “We have specific zip codes in Brooklyn that we’re going to be looking at because it’s very localized and our health officials are going to be reaching out to those Brooklyn communities, and in Orange and Rockland communities today to do additional testing and compliance measures in those areas.”
