37 COVID-19 Deaths in New York State Yesterday

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

"New Yorkers have shown strength and resiliency through an incredibly difficult time in our lives, and the numbers are declining as we make progress fighting this pandemic. As vaccination rates go up, we're making the vaccine easier to access and improving the state's public health by establishing walk-in appointments and new pop-up sites," Governor Cuomo said. "The infection rate is a function of what each of us does to slow the spread, and washing hands, wearing masks and social distancing remain critical behaviors that save lives. I urge everyone who can get the vaccine to make an appointment if you are not already vaccinated so we can put this pandemic behind us and rebuild New York."
