Governor Cuomo: "As we enter into Super Bowl weekend, we cannot get cocky with COVID."

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the lowest COVID-19 daily positivity rate since November 28, with net hospitalizations dropping 553 over the last week.

"The good news is New York's numbers continue to show progress as the holiday surge recedes," Governor Cuomo said. "Our positivity rate has been steadily declining, and that success is a reflection of New Yorkers' commitment to defeating this beast. We know the weapon to win the war is the vaccine and more and more needles are getting in arms every day, but the federal supply is still not enough. This has been a long road, but I commend New Yorkers for their determination through it all. As we enter into Super Bowl weekend, we cannot get cocky with COVID - we must remain vigilant: be smart, wear a mask, socially distance and stay New York Tough."
