The Office of the Governor of the State of New York

Update on State's Progress During COVID-19 Pandemic

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

'The COVID-19 vaccine is here and we're distributing it as fast as possible, but supply limitations and the continued spread of the virus should give New Yorkers cause for concern,' Governor Cuomo said. 'We have the network in place to distribute the vaccine, but not enough of the vaccines themselves. That's why New Yorkers need to stay vigilant as we continue to battle the pandemic and use the tools that have worked so well all along-wearing masks, washing hands and social distancing. We remain focused on making sure there are enough hospital beds and boosting our testing to ever-higher levels. We will get through the pandemic and reach a new day, but in the meantime it will take New Yorkers working together in their communities to get us through to the light at the end of the tunnel.'
