Positive Testing Rate in All Focus Zone Areas is 4.13 Percent; New York State Positivity Outside All Focus Zone Areas is 2.62 Percent

Statewide Positivity Rate is 2.96 Percent

47 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.

"Remember the experts said, 'Beware the fall.' It gets cold, people start to stay indoors, college students start to come home and there's less outdoor activity. That's the spike we're seeing go up now, and we are now going into the holiday season and 37 days of increased social interaction," Governor Cuomo said. "This is not a normal Thanksgiving. It was not a normal summer. It was not a normal Labor Day. It was not a normal school year. Even President Trump's CDC and President-Elect Biden's advisors agree we should all be celebrating only with our immediate household. I know it's hard, but we cannot go backwards - it would be disrespectful to the essential workers, nurses and doctors, many of whom gave their lives so we could stay home and stay safe. This year, I give thanks to all those essential workers who showed up for work every day, even in the worst of this crisis. Celebrate Thanksgiving with your extended family: The family of New York, representative of all those people who did the right thing this entire year for one and other and acted as a family. We will get through this surge by continuing to do the right thing: Wearing our masks, washing our hands, avoiding gatherings large and small, and staying New York Tough."
