Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

"New York continues to make progress combatting the scourge of COVID-19, even as we see heavily increasing infections in other states," Governor Cuomo said. "Yesterday, hospitalizations continued to decline and we saw a low rate of positive tests, which show the state continues on the right track as we practice a slow, data-driven and incremental reopening. The more than 900 new cases in New York yesterday, while representing just 1.38 percent of tests, is a reminder that the virus is still here and I cannot repeat enough that our actions today - those of individuals being smart and following all precautions, and local governments enforcing the state's guidelines - will determine which direction these numbers go. This holiday weekend please wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands, and stay New York smart."
