COVID-19 Dashboards

(WETM) – New York State has reached another record low for COVID-19 positivity rates. The Southern Tier’s seven day positivity rate increased to 0.69 percent. New York City has the lowest seven day average with 0.43 percent.

  • Statewide 7-Day Average Positivity is 0.51% — Has Declined for 64 Consecutive Days – Lowest in the Country per Johns Hopkins University
  • 75,883 Vaccine Doses Administered Over Last 24 Hours – Statewide Vaccination Rate is 68.9%
  • 796 Patient Hospitalizations Statewide
  • 14 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday

“COVID positivity rates keep falling every day and it’s a direct result of the hard work and commitment New Yorkers have displayed throughout this entire pandemic,” Governor Cuomo said. “We have never been closer to the light at the end of the tunnel, but to fully return to normal, we must continue to do all we can to get New Yorkers vaccinated. Over 9 million New Yorkers have already done their part and gotten their shot — now is the time for the rest of the state to follow suit. The vaccine has never been easier to access and with a multitude of incentives now in place, there are truly no excuses left. So, if you still haven’t been vaccinated, please, do the right thing to protect your community and get vaccinated today.”

The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccinating facilities to report all COVID-19 vaccine administration data within 24 hours; the vaccine administration data on the dashboard is updated daily to reflect the most up-to-date metrics in the state’s vaccination effort. New York State Department of Health-reported data from NYSIIS and CIR differs slightly from federally-reported data, which is inclusive of federally-administered doses and other minor differences. Both numbers are included in the release above
