Citywide positivity rate

New York City has recorded the following positivity rate over seven days according to the state measure:

Date Positivity Rate
10/14 1.3%
10/15 1.3%
10/16 1.2%
10/17 1.2%
10/18 1.2%
10/19 1.2%

The state calculates its positivity rate using these criteria:

  • Positive test is counted on the day the test result is received
  • Antigen and PCR tests are both counted
  • All negative tests by the same person are counted when a person tests negative multiple times in a seven-day period
  • Positive test is counted only once if the person tests positive multiple times in a seven-day period
