NEW YORK (WWTI) — Governor Kathy Hochul updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress in combating COVID-19 on Thursday.

“As we approach the spring holidays and prepare to gather with family and friends, it is important that we do not let our guard down,” Governor Hochul said. “Make sure you are taking a test before you travel and if you test positive for the virus talk to your doctor about treatments that are available. The vaccine remains the most effective tool at preventing serious illness so make sure everyone in your family is vaccinated and boosted if eligible.”
