Westchester officials say there are still 3,112 active COVID-19 cases in the county - up from about 2,700 cases a week ago.
Hospitalizations are down at 121. Last month, that number was 130.
A total of 20 people died last month due to COVID-19 in Westchester County.
County Executive George Latimer is stressing the need for everyone to get vaccinated, especially those with existing health concerns.
"As a number, it's well-below the period of time of our peak infections. But it's still not at the zero number, which mean COVID is still with us. So, we're managing it by means of constant attention to vaccination," says Latimer
Starting Friday, free vaccine clinics for kids as young as 6 months old will be held at the Department of Health Building in White Plains.
Appointments are required.
