COVID-19 positivity rates drop below one percent in every NYS region; first time since August 2020

News

(WETM) – The COVID-19 positivity rate in every region of New York State has dropped below 1 percent for the first time since August 19, 2020.

“New Yorkers continue to beat back COVID-19 by getting vaccinated and practicing safe behaviors, and we’re making progress rebuilding New York for the future. Vaccination is the key to defeating this terrible virus for good, and we need all New Yorkers who haven’t yet received the shot to do so,” Governor Cuomo said. “We’re upping our game with new incentives to encourage New Yorkers to get vaccinated, including a $5 million lottery and free full scholarships to SUNY and CUNY. The numbers are coming down and more shots go in arms every single day, and we’re lifting restrictions to help New Yorkers move into the new normal and build our economy back.”

The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccinating facilities to report all COVID-19 vaccine administration data within 24 hours; the vaccine administration data on the dashboard is updated daily to reflect the most up-to-date metrics in the state’s vaccination effort. New York State Department of Health-reported data from NYSIIS and CIR differs slightly from federally-reported data, which is inclusive of federally-administered doses and other minor differences. Both numbers are included in the release above.
