Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the statewide COVID-19 positivity rate dropped to 2.14 percent, the lowest level since November 5. The statewide 7-day average positivity rate dropped to 2.69 percent, the lowest since November 11.

 

“New Yorkers practicing safe behaviors to fight the COVID-19 pandemic every single day, and we’re going to need their vigilance and fortitude as we continue to vaccinate residents as fast as we can. We’re making it easier for New Yorkers to get vaccinated, expanding eligibility and opening new vaccination sites, but there’s still some distance to travel before we get to the light at the end of the tunnel,” Governor Cuomo said. “New Yorkers should continue washing their hands, wearing masks and socially distancing to keep themselves, their families and their friends safe. Variants of the virus remain a concern, and we’ll do the best in this fight if everyone participates both individually and in their communities.”
