COVID-19 Dashboards

(WETM) – The statewide seven-day average COVID-19 positivity rate dropped to 0.65 percent yesterday, a new low. In the Southern Tier, the seven-day average is 0.52 percent, which is the second-lowest in the state. New York City is the lowest with 0.50 percent.

“New Yorkers are continuing to beat back COVID every day and as the numbers keep going down we are able to get our economy back up and running and move our state into the future,” Governor Cuomo said. “We’ve followed the science and the data and reduced restrictions on people and businesses, but our priority remains getting more people vaccinated. With the vaccination rate starting to slow, we’ve used creative solutions to get even more shots in arms – we’ve offered park passes, transportation tickets and even a $5 million lottery to encourage New Yorkers to take the shot while opening new pop-up sites at places New Yorkers frequently go as part of their daily routines. The days ahead continue to look bright, but we need New Yorkers who haven’t yet taken the vaccine to make an appointment or walk into a site to secure that future for all of us.”
