Order Reprints...

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Friday announced updated COVID-19 micro-cluster focus areas in New York State. Brooklyn’s Red Zone focus zone area has new boundaries to reflect a decreased positivity rate and new daily cases in certain neighborhoods.

Based on data metrics including testing results and hospitalization rates Queens – Far Rockaway’s yellow zone has been removed; Rockland County’s red zone focus areas will change to an orange warning zone; and Orange County’s orange zone will change to a yellow precautionary zone.

Focus zones in Queens – Kew Gardens/Forest Hills and the upstate Broome, Steuben and Chemung counties will not change. The governor also announced a new yellow precautionary zone focus area in Westchester County.

“You’re seeing global and national surges that are dramatic, and that’s the new reality of COVID,” said Cuomo. “The challenge for our state, like other states, is managing the increase.”
