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.

 

"What New Yorkers did is extraordinary and they saved thousands of lives - that is inarguable," Governor Cuomo said. "While our numbers remain low, the fall is going to bring a new set of challenges with flu season, and we have to be aware of it and adapt our management and priorities to the new realities. We must protect our progress, so everyone must keep washing their hands, wearing their masks and remaining socially distant."
