38 COVID-19 Deaths in New York State Yesterday

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

“The COVID virus changes almost every day, and as the enemy changes we have to adjust our tactics to defeat it,” Governor Cuomo said. “The numbers are all headed in the right direction, and as they go down we are continuing to relax restrictions more and more so we can begin to get back to normal. But we’re not done with COVID yet – all the good numbers mean nothing if we don’t keep up with the precautions we know work to stop the spread. I encourage all New Yorkers to wear a mask, remain socially distanced and most importantly, get vaccinated.”
