Evidently, not even yellow.

Can you imagine if Cuomo turns Queens yellow and makes CH ois yellow?

Proof what a farce these color zones are. South Brooklyn was all painted yellow with a broad brush and 11213 is ignored.

Iím not complaining, but he can call himself scientific all he wants, this is one more decision thatís reactive and at best semi-scientific (whatever that means).
My barber needs your support, heís a real sweetheart.

Yellow isn't for areas close to 3%, it's for areas around the red zones to that people can't just go to the next block over.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

U.n.b.e.l.i.e.v.a.b.l.e.!

(Now I understand what happened to the yellow flag that I saw the other day on my neighbor's Sukkah).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If you look at the map it doesnít make sense, it literally looks like a bucket of paint just flipped over.

How does that work in Rockland? There are no red zones, only Orange and yellow.

According to ny.gov it's red and yellow. I don't understand it.

All they are doing IMHO is having mass testing by people who got it prior.

Way to skew the numbers and bring the positivity rate down

They use an inaccurate metric and you're surprised people are messing with it?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Set up a system that is easy to game and you are asking for people to game it.

FWIW if asymptomatic people run to get tested they may pick up extra positives (false or otherwise) and skew the numbers the other way. Who knows!

No reason not to be. Did you notice the difference in language between the CH call to test and other places? Pretty big deal...
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

Which would also be a good thing since they would no longer be spreading to others unless they are COVIDiots
