"The dedication and determination of New Yorkers in fighting the COVID pandemic is stronger than ever and it shows in the numbers," Governor Cuomo said. "As our hospitalizations continue to decrease and vaccination rates increase, we are closer than ever to the light at the end of the tunnel. While we should all be encouraged by the progress we've made, this fight is not yet over and I urge New Yorkers to continue following the practices we know stop COVID in its tracks: wear a mask, wash your hands and social distance. We're all in this together, united, loving and New York Tough."
