CHART: NYC 7-day test positivity over the past 3 months. The growth we've seen citywide, especially this month, is deeply concerning.

NYC has recovered 300,000 of the 900,000 jobs lost in March and April, driven by the stimulus. Job growth is slowing. We need another stimulus immediately.

The City arrives at these figures by following CDC guidelines on counting from collection date, not combining PCR and Antrigen tests and by performing deduplication. But no matter how you slice it: COVID cases are rising in NYC. That's what's relevant here.

And to be clear: NYC performs a deduplication every day before reporting our citywide indicators.

When we proposed the zip code shutdowns in early October, it was clear that citywide COVID rates were dominated by clusters in about 9 ZIPs. We saw community spread WITHIN those clusters, but we didn't see it significantly break out of those clusters/ZIPs.

We did enter a time where clusters (BK, Queens) were the primary source of COVID growth in the city. That is no longer the case though.

*That's the State's ultimate purview. *But City Hall believes it is not "if" but "when" for new restrictions for bars, gyms etc given the rate of growth. *Next steps would be Orange Zone from State likely.

It is now clear that we have entered community spread in New York City. While we've seen clusters, they are not the sole nexus of COVID. COVID does not respect boundaries. Case in point: All 5 boroughs have at least 5 ZIPs over 3% and 40 ZIPs are over 4%.

2. I will not be visiting my family, which is sad, but it's a small sacrifice compared to what others have been through.

Missing Thanksgiving in-person is a small sacrifice compared to what so many have - and still could - go through.
