Governor Cuomo Announces New York Hits New Lows for COVID-19 Hospitalizations, ICU Patients and Intubations – ny.gov

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 State continues to closely monitor the alarming rise in COVID-19 cases throughout the nation, and as that situation worsens, we’re taking every action we can here at home to slow the spread and save lives,” Governor Cuomo said. “While yesterday’s numbers show New York is continuing on the right trajectory, we cannot get complacent.  With much of the rest of the country surging, we are still vulnerable and have to continue to wear masks, socially distance and be New York Tough.  We will get through this, together.”

 

The governor also announced that the State Liquor Authority and State Police Task Force yesterday visited and observed 835 establishments across New York City and Long Island, and found violations at 41 establishments, or 5 percent.
