Governor Andrew M. Cuomo ID-19 pandemic.

“New Yorkers have kept themselves and their families safe and remained vigilant throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and even as we vaccinate more people every day, everyone should continue practicing the behaviors that keep them safe,” Governor Cuomo said. 

“Our distribution network stands at the ready to accept and administer an increase in vaccine supply, but New Yorkers should remember the positivity rate is a function of what they do to slow the spread. Washing hands, wearing masks and social distancing are critical tools to help us fight the virus, and they work. We’re going to get to the light at the end of the tunnel, but there’s work to be done before we defeat the COVID beast once and for all.”
