Onondaga County announced six new deaths and 1,052 new cases since Saturday. Saturday saw the biggest surge of 404. Meanwhile, Oswego County announced 706 new cases over the past week and five deaths.

Governor Kathy Hochul today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combating COVID-19.    

“We have to stay vigilant as the new variant, winter weather, and more time spent indoors with friends and family increases the likelihood of the virus spreading,” Governor Hochul said. “But we are not where we were a year ago – we now have the tools to fight this pandemic and prevent New Yorkers from getting severely ill from COVID-19. Get vaccinated if you haven’t already, get your booster if you have, encourage others to get the shot, and mask up.”
