NY Governor Cuomo Announces Updated COVID-19 Micro-Cluster Focus Zones

GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES UPDATED COVID-19 MICRO-CLUSTER FOCUS ZONES   

Based on Progress Controlling COVID Spread, Brooklyn Red Zone will Transition to Orange Warning Zone 

New Yellow Precautionary Zones in Erie, Monroe and Onondaga Counties 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced updated COVID-19 micro-cluster focus areas in New York State. Based on data metrics including testing results and hospitalization rates, Brooklyn’s red zone will transition to an orange warning zone. The Governor also announced new yellow precautionary zone focus areas in Erie, Monroe and Onondaga Counties.

“COVID is surging across the country and the globe, and we expect the rates will continue to go up through the fall and into the winter,” Governor Cuomo said. “The long-term prognosis is get a vaccine as quickly as possible, and administer the vaccine as quickly, fairly and equitably as possible. In the meantime, we manage the increase by doing more testing and targeted restrictions where necessary, and being more aggressive on enforcement. I know people are tired – COVID fatigue is real. But the virus isn’t tired. The red, orange and yellow zones are our way of saying the virus is making headway and we’re going to increase restrictions and we’re going to increase enforcement. When we see a small increase, we attack that small increase – and the numbers show it works. If we stay smart and disciplined, we can manage this – but it will take all of us being New York Tough.”

Modifications to Current Focus Zones

Brooklyn – Red Zone Changes to Orange Warning Zone

Last week, Brooklyn’s Red Zone was reduced in size by 50 percent based on progress. Metrics demonstrate continued progress controlling COVID spread and the zone will be transitioned to Orange, allowing many businesses to reopen.
