Those rates are still well below their spring highs, but much higher than on Oct. 21, when Governor Cuomo said he would shut down any neighborhood where more than 4% of tests tested positive for the virus. After numbers skyrocketed across the state following year-end vacations and meetings, health officials adopted a new policy to designate “red zones” based...
