Share

Statewide Positivity Rate is 0.44%

7-Day Average is 0.60% - Declined 59 Consecutive Days

Hospitalizations Fall Below 1,000 for First Time Since October 21

77,131 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours

10 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday  

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the statewide single-day COVID-19 positivity rate dropped to 0.44 percent yesterday, and the seven-day average dropped to 0.60 percent - both record lows. Additionally, hospitalizations statewide fell below 1,000 for the first time since October 21.   

"COVID rates across the state have never been lower and hospitalizations are under 1,000 for the first time in 8 months, all while businesses are reopening and people are coming back together again," Governor Cuomo said. "Our state is back, and that's a testament to the New Yorkers who have stayed tough and smart over the last year - but most of all, it's a testament to the more than 19 million vaccinations we've put in arms. The vaccines are safe, free, and effective, period, and the sooner we get each and every eligible New Yorker vaccinated, the sooner we can finish off this pandemic once and for all."
