The positivity rate of coronavirus in New York has dropped to 3.11%, according to the City.

It’s a slight increase from Friday’s number of 3.02%, which is measured over an average of seven days.

There were 1,345 new COVID-19 cases and 118 patients admitted to the hospital with the potentially deadly virus, Mayor De Blasio tweeted Saturday.

“This weekend is critical to fighting # COVID19.” tweeted the mayor.

The mayor said Friday night the positivity rate had exceeded 4% in 40 postal codes including Breezy Point in the Rockaways and Ozone Park in Queens.

De Blasio also warned that the city could face “orange zone” restrictions by Governor Cuomo as early as the first week of December. This will mean that indoor lunches will be suspended and gyms and hairdressers will have to close.

Cuomo will not commit Friday to a schedule for any potential closures saying it depends on what happens after the Thanksgiving holiday.
