"New Yorkers brought the curve down by making big changes, and we see that work reflected in the numbers every day," Governor Cuomo said. "But we must continue to be smart - by wearing a mask, social distancing and washing our hands, we all have a role to play in protecting the progress we've made and leading the rest of the nation by example. We cannot go back to the hell we experienced three months ago, so please stay vigilant and New York Tough."
