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

"We've said from the very beginning that the data and the science would guide our reopening plan, and with the positivity and hospitalization rates on a consistent downward trend we are able to relax restrictions even further," Governor Cuomo said. "This is all good news, but we're not out of the woods yet. Our progress is directly affected by what we do and how we act, so we must continue with the precautions we know work to stop the spread if we want to beat COVID once and for all — wearing masks, staying socially distanced and, most importantly, getting vaccinated."
