New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio reiterated the city could move into the state's orange zone as soon as the week after Thanksgiving, the mayor said on the WNYC radio show Friday morning.
The mayor said in part, New York City would move in to the orange zoon based on state data, “soon after Thanksgiving probably the first week of December.”
What this means: The orange zone would shut down indoor dining and gyms, according to previous guidelines released by the state.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will be responsible for making that decision when that time comes, according to officials.
New York City has a 7-day-test-positivity rate of 3.02%, de Blasio said. The city reports at least 1,307 new cases of the virus, according to city spokesperson Bill Neidhardt.
At least 115 patients have been hospitalized for the virus, Neidhardt said.
Remember: These numbers were released by the city’s health agency, and may not line up exactly in real time with CNN’s database drawn from Johns Hopkins University and the Covid Tracking Project.
