Statewide 7-Day Average Positivity is 0.47% - Has Declined for 66 Consecutive Days - Lowest in the Nation per Johns Hopkins University

104,488 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours - 11 Million New Yorkers Have Now Received at Least One Dose - Statewide Vaccination Rate is 69.2%

State-Run Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing Sites Demobilizing as Demand for Testing Drops 88% from January to May

9 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress combatting COVID-19.

Governor Cuomo also announced the demobilizing of state-run drive-through COVID-19 testing sites across New York State beginning Friday, June 11. These testing site closures follow historically low positivity rates and an 88 percent decrease in drive-through testing demand from January to May 2021, allowing the State to focus its resources on getting more New Yorkers vaccinated. As New York State rapidly approaches the goal of a 70 percent vaccination rate, and with the abundance of various testing options in all areas of the State, the dependence on drive-through testing has dramatically decreased.

"New Yorkers have embodied the spirit of what it means to be New York Tough and it is because of their determination to defeat COVID-19 that we are able to demobilize these testing sites," Governor Cuomo said. "Since our nation-leading testing program began in March 2020, over 57 million tests have been conducted in New York State, with 1.6 million at our drive-through sites. This incredible effort was made possible through partnerships with our State agencies, their dedicated workforce, health care providers and the National Guard and I cannot thank them enough for their service to New Yorkers. I encourage all who are eligible to get vaccinated so we can continue our work to return to normalcy and reimagine a stronger, better and healthier New York."

As drive-through testing sites begin to demobilize, no current drive-through testing appointments will be impacted. Demobilization will begin tomorrow with the following state-run drive-through sites:

The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccinating facilities to report all COVID-19 vaccine administration data within 24 hours; the vaccine administration data on the dashboard is updated daily to reflect the most up-to-date metrics in the state's vaccination effort. New York State Department of Health-reported data from NYSIIS and CIR differs slightly from federally-reported data, which is inclusive of federally-administered doses and other minor differences. Both numbers are included in the release above.
