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.

'New Yorkers have done a tremendous job at continuing to beat back COVID, but we are not out of the woods yet. Even as we keep expanding eligibility, opening new vaccination sites and working to ensure the system is equitable, there's still more work to be done before New Yorkers reach the desired level of immunity,' Governor Cuomo said. 'New variants and continuing infections are still causes for concern, and New Yorkers should stay vigilant. Washing hands, social distancing and masking up are small behaviors that make a big difference in our ability to combat this virus. The light at the end of the tunnel is ahead-we just have to get there together.'
