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 Yorkers' ability to stay vigilant and conscientious toward their fellow citizens is critical as we continue to battle COVID-19 throughout the state. That mindset—that I wear a mask not just to protect myself, but to protect you as well—is what will get us through to the other side," Governor Cuomo said. "New Yorkers need to keep wearing masks, socially distancing and washing their hands, and local governments need to keep enforcing state guidance. There is a long road ahead, but we will tackle it together by staying New York Tough." 

Yesterday, the State Liquor Authority and State Police Task Force visited 1,455 establishments in New York City and Long Island and observed 10 establishments that were not in compliance with state requirements. A county breakdown of yesterday's observed violations is below:
