“New York’s ability to beat back COVID-19 and slow the spread depends on what we do. That’s why it’s so important to wear a mask, socially distance and wash your hands, and why local governments are critical partners in enforcing state guidance,” Governor Cuomo said. “When informed citizens stay safe and play by the rules, 35 straight days with an infection rate below 1 percent is what you get. Now we have to stay New York Tough and maintain a vigilant attitude so we don’t go back to the hell we experienced.”
