COVID Update March 31: Count Increases in Scarsdale, County Center Under Construction

CountyCenterWork is underway at the Westchester County Center to convert it to a hospital to treat non-COVID-19 patients.County Executive George Latimer provided some local updates on the COVID-19 outbreak in Westchester in a press briefing on March 30.

Here are the most recent numbers according to Latimer:

-Westchester Cases: 9,326
-Westchester Tested: 34,108
-Total Hospitalizations (Cumulative): 378
-Total Hospitalized Currently in Westchester: 211
-Deaths: 19

The count in Scarsdale continues to climb as well. Latimer reported 59 positives as compared to 35 cases reported on March 23. Since that time the Scarsdale Medical Group has begun testing, so perhaps the higher count is due to the improved availability of testing.

Latimer also reported that the Westchester County Center is under construction to be used as a hospital for non-COVID-19 patients. The interior and the west parking lot will be set up to accommodate approximately 100 patients.
