27 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.

"New York's COVID-19 numbers are firmly on the decline and more New Yorkers are getting vaccinated every single day, but it's important to remember that we aren't through this pandemic yet and practicing safe behaviors still makes a critical difference," Governor Cuomo said. "We've expanded walk-in access and have continued to open pop-up sites as we try to get more shots in arms across the state. Washing hands, wearing masks and social distancing are still important behaviors we can use to slow the spread. New Yorkers are going to get to the light at the end of the tunnel together, but first we have to stay vigilant and defeat the COVID beast."
