89 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.

"We're continuing to see promising decreases in the positivity and hospitalization rates, and these numbers show that our vaccination efforts and the disciplined behavior of New Yorkers are working to beat back this virus," Governor Cuomo said. "Now that our numbers are back on track, we are able to begin reopening more businesses and sectors of our economy - like arts, entertainment and weddings - while continuing to monitor the infection rate to make sure we don't lose any of the progress we've already made. This is all good news - but now is not the time for New Yorkers to get complacent. I encourage everyone to continue doing the things we know are effective in fighting this virus - wash your hands, wear a mask and practice social distancing."
