It took some pushing and pulling, but Roosevelt Island returns to having one the City’s lowest COVID-19 infection rates. Department of Health statistics show 10044 as one of only two Zip Codes reporting less than 1% positive.
Many more are being tested, these days, yielding a broader picture of the impact of COVID-19 on Roosevelt Island. In the most recent week reported by DOH, 632 were tested.
But only 6 were positive.
Increased community awareness plays a role, and the diligence of residents in reporting Red Bus and Tram violations reduced daily risks.
