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

“We are seeing a rising tide of COVID nationally and internationally. The rate of increase is less in New York, but it is an increase,” Governor Cuomo said. “We don’t have the same problem that other states have, but we’re seeing an increase and the increase is continuing. We know the factors that contribute to spread, like COVID fatigue, winter, restaurants, gyms, and living room family spread. What’s going to happen? Will we shut down and will we have more restrictions? What has worked for New York from day one is it’s a pure consequence of science. There’s no political decision making, no ideological decision making. Look at the numbers, and if the numbers are increasing and if they’re not slowing, then you have to restrict activity. Our actions today determine our positivity rate tomorrow, so follow the public health law – wear a mask and adhere to gathering limits, and localities need to do the enforcement.”

The Governor noted that the positive testing rate in all focus areas under the state’s Micro-Cluster strategy is 4.83 percent, and outside the focus zone areas is 2.57 percent. Within the focus areas, 28,831 test results were reported yesterday, yielding 1,393 positives. In the remainder of the state, not counting these focus areas, 155,331 test results were reported, yielding 3,995 positives.
