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

 

"Cases are increasing across the country and the globe -- and there are several warning flags in New York. The challenge for our state has been to manage the increase and try to ensure the spikes in other states don't impact us too much," Governor Cuomo said. "We manage the increase by deploying the most aggressive testing in the country and our micro-cluster strategy - when we identify a small spread, we increase enforcement and restrictions in a targeted way. As we head into winter months, it's going to take the work of all New Yorkers to ensure we don't go back to where we were this spring - I understand COVID fatigue is real, but it's on all of us to stay vigilant and wear our masks, wash our hands, remain socially distant and stay New York Tough."

     

The Governor noted that the positive testing rate in all focus areas under the state's Micro-Cluster strategy is 4.22 percent, and outside the focus zone areas is 2.01 percent. Within the focus areas, 13,488 test results were reported yesterday, yielding 569 positives. In the remainder of the state, not counting these focus areas, 149,803 test results were reported, yielding 3,018 positives. Full results for tests reported yesterday, the day prior, the current 7-day rolling average, and last two weeks is below.
