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

"New York is making progress in the footrace between the vaccination rate and the infection rate - we are continuing to make it even easier for residents to access the vaccine and at the same time New Yorkers are staying tough and practicing the safe behaviors we know stop COVID in its tracks," Governor Cuomo said. "All the arrows are pointing in the right direction, and we've been able to open even more sectors of our economy and increase capacity for several different industries, but we're not out of the woods yet. The virus is still here and we need all New Yorkers to follow the public health guidance for us to get through this pandemic and reach the light at the end of the tunnel together."

It is important to note that data, including test results and hospital rates, reported early in the week are often not completely reflective of the current situation due to lower discharges and testing volume over the weekend. Data trends over a period of time, such as using 7-day averages, are a preferred metric.
