Gov. Andrew Cuomo raises alarm about new virus hot spots

Governor Andrew Cuomo said Monday that just 10 ZIP codes represent a quarter of the state's new infections in recent testing.

ALBANY, N.Y. — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is raising alarm about the emergence of a handful of coronavirus hot spots in New York.

The Democratic governor said Monday that just 10 ZIP codes represent a quarter of the state's new infections in recent testing. The ZIP codes are mostly in the Mid-Hudson region, as well as New York City.

The ZIP codes include:

  • 10977 (located in Rockland County)
  • 10952 (located in Rockland County) 
  • 10950 (located in Orange County) 
  • 10901 (located in Rockland County) 
  • 11219 (located in Kings County)
  • 11210 (located in Kings County) 
  • 13905 (located in Broome County) 
  • 11204 (located in Kings County) 
  • 11230 (located in Kings County) 
  • 11367 (located in Queens) 

New York has reported just over 11,500 new COVID-19 infections over the past two weeks. 

Cuomo says the state has 200 rapid testing machines available. 

A disproportionate number of new cases have come from a handful of communities in and north of New York City that are home to many Orthodox Jews. Cuomo warned he could close schools where too many people are testing positive.
