Gov. Cuomo provides Saturday coronavirus update for NYS

News

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

“COVID-19 has been a long and extremely difficult time in the lives of New Yorkers, and although I know COVID fatigue is setting in and people are desperate to return to normal, we’re still dealing with a pandemic and we still need to practice the behaviors that keep ourselves and others safe,” Governor Cuomo said. “New York continues to make progress on vaccinations, and we’re expanding eligibility and opening more pop-up sites across the state to get more shots in arms. That’s good news, but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep washing our hands, wearing masks and staying socially distanced. The infection rate is a function of what we do to slow the spread, individually and in our communities, and variants of the virus should still be a concern for all of us. We’re moving forward toward the light at the end of the tunnel, but we have to defeat this COVID beast together to get there.”
