The number of COVID-19 hospitalizations rose slightly here in Rockland County since yesterday. In order to get to the next phase of the governor’s regional reopening plan, Rockland and the other mid-Hudson counties must show a pattern of, among other things, declining hospitalizations. Yesterday’s slight increase is not likely to derail the county from phase three. COVID-19 by the numbers now, the state has confirmed around 380,000 total cases and more than 24,400 deaths. In Rockland, the state says we’ve got 13,372 reported cases, and the Rockland Health Department confirms 661 fatalities here in the county.
