ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10/WSYR-TV) — Governor Cuomo Saturday updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite increasing infection rates across the country and in our region, we continue to see our numbers hold at low levels, all thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers to change their behavior and our data-driven, phased reopening. While our numbers remain low and steady, this is not the time to get complacent — we must focus on protecting our hard-won progress now. Remember, wear your mask, socially distance and above all, stay New York Tough.”Governor Andrew Cuomo
