Roosevelt Island Infection Rates Still Near Best in City

Roosevelt Island infection rates continue setting a healthy pace in the most recent COVID-19 reports from the New York City Department of Health.

Even as rates for testing plummet, like the city in general, Roosevelt Island comes in at a skinny 1.16% rate of infections. In fact, measured against all other Zip Codes, the community comes in third, and it’s trending downward.

And consistent during the COVID year.

With a tone initially set by then RIOC president/CEO Susan Rosenthal, Roosevelt Islanders stood out. Masking and distancing was always above average. And just last weekend, turnout for popup vaccinations at the senior center was very high.

In contrast, New York’s overall infection rate was 6.34% in the same statistical period.
