NYC Mayor de Blasio: Closure of Non-Essential Businesses / Activities in 9 Zip Codes Due to COVID-19 Clusters

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio today announced a Reopening rollback for specific zip codes due to clusters of COVID-19 cases within those areas.

Beginning October 7, pending approval from the state government, 9 zip codes with a positivity rate above 3% would re-enter a period of PAUSE. This means the closure of all non-essential businesses and schools (public and non public). In addition, restaurants would only be allowed ‘go and pick up’. We presume ‘delivery’ would be allowed although it was not mentioned during today’s press conference.

“Now again, everything is based on data and based on the scientific approach,” said the Mayor. “Our healthcare leadership have been looking at the data constantly and looking for what it tells us and what actions are necessary. The specific benchmark of 3% positivity or more for 7 or more consecutive days has been crucial in their deliberations.”

“There are 11 additional zip codes that are areas of real concern. These 11 zip codes have not yet reached a level of 3% positivity for at least 7 consecutive days but they are edging up towards that level.”

The Mayor stated that within these 11 zip codes high-risk activities would be ceased. They include indoor dining, gyms and pools.

Reopening thresholds for those hardest hit areas would require the following:

At least 14 days of PAUSE with less than 3% positivity (14-day average) for last 7 consecutive days

OR

At least 28 days of PAUSE with less than 3% positivity (14-day average) at the end of PAUSE.

The Nine Zip Codes mentioned above are comprised of the following:

Neighborhood ZIP 14-day positivity

(as of 10/4)

# days > 3%
Edgemere/Far Rockaway 11691 5.63% 14+
Borough Park 11219 8.31% 14+
Gravesend/Homecrest 11223 7.59% 14+
Midwood 11230 6.98% 14+
Bensonhurst/Mapleton 11204 6.47% 14
Flatlands/Midwood 11210 5.94% 14+
Gerritsen Beach/Homecrest/ Sheepshead Bay 11229 4.36% 11
Kew Gardens 11415 3.81% 14+
Kew Gardens Hills/Pomonok 11367 3.86% 7

 

The proposal also includes actions in ZIP codes where rates have remained between two and three percent. In these neighborhoods, high-risk activities – like indoor dining, gyms, and indoor and outdoor pools – will be closed starting on Wednesday, October 7th. These areas include:

Neighborhood ZIP 14-day positivity

(as of 10/4)
