ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo Saturday updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“COVID-19 remains a serious concern for all New Yorkers, and we can’t let our guard down until more New Yorkers are vaccinated and the infection rate drops further. New York State is using every tool it has to combat the virus and getting shots in arms as fast as possible throughout the state,” Governor Cuomo said. “How we fare depends on what we do, and washing hands, social distancing and masking up are crucial tools we can use to protect each other in this fight against the virus. New York has a widening vaccine distribution network, but until more New Yorkers are able to take the vaccine we need to stay vigilant.”
