Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that 11 million COVID-19 diagnostic tests have now been conducted in New York State. The Governor also announced another record high number of tests—134,267—were reported to New York State yesterday. In the top 20 ZIP codes in areas that have seen recent outbreaks – Brooklyn, Queens, and Rockland and Orange Counties – 8,676 tests were conducted, yielding 450 positives or a 5.2 percent positivity rate. In the remainder of the state, 125,591 tests were conducted yielding 1,281 positives or a 1.01 percent positivity rate.

“This pandemic is not over. We continue to closely monitor the data throughout the state, push our testing capacity to new highs and keep an especially close eye on the ZIP codes in hot spot areas, which represented 26 percent of yesterday’s cases despite being home to 6.7 of the population,” Governor Cuomo said. “We know that washing hands, socially distancing and wearing masks makes all the difference in our ability to tame this beast. So my message to New Yorkers is please stay vigilant and my message to local governments is do the enforcement. We can beat this thing if we work together and stay New York Tough.”

New York State continues to track clusters with a particular focus on areas where there are hot spot, cluster situations. Within the top 20 ZIP codes in counties with recent outbreaks – Kings, Queens, Orange, and Rockland – the average rate of positive tests is 5.2 percent. The rate of positive tests for the remainder of New York State, not counting these 20 ZIP codes, is 1.01 percent. These 20 ZIP codes contained 26 percent of all positive cases in New York State yesterday, but represent only 6.7 percent of the state’s population.

 

Areas in hot spot communities, predominantly in Brooklyn, Queens, Rockland, and Orange, will be subject of focused testing efforts including access to rapid testing machines. The ZIP codes are available below:
