231 Test Positive for Coronavirus on Roosevelt Island

According to data released by the New York City Department of Health, on May 27th, 2020, 231 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in Zip Code 10044. Only 797 tests have been completed so far, representing a small percentage of local residents. 

The data is not broken down into more discrete categories; so, no information about buildings or businesses is known at this time.

UPDATE: On Sunday, April 19th, the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation reported a second coronavirus death in its Public Safety Department: Detective Wayne Jones.

On April 8th, RIOC reported its first coronavirus related staff death, Public Safety Officer Corey Fischer, admired and popular among residents, a twenty-five year veteran of the department.

At least two Coler Hospital residents have died from Covid-19. Coler reports a total of 73 positive cases among 540 residents, a much better result than other nursing homes in the state.

Only Rivercross has publicly reported a positive case, but actor Mark Blum, who lived at 425 Main Street, died after contracting the virus. The Octagon says that a single resident is in self-quarantine with symptoms but has not been recommended for testing.

This information was first reported in The Gothamist.
