ALBANY, NY —  Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

New York’s most powerful tools in the fight against COVID-19 are the actions each of us take to slow the spread. When you wear a mask, socially distance and wash your hands, you’re protecting other New Yorkers, not just yourself,” Governor Cuomo said. “Local governments have critical roles to play enforcing state guidance and I urge them to keep doing so. We’ll closely monitor the data here as the pandemic continues to spread across the country, and we’ll get through this together by staying New York Tough.”
