NYS COVID data continues to decline as the state reopens

New York News

(WETM) — New York’s seven-day positivity rate decreased below 0.40% and has declined for 72 straight days. The Capital Region’s seven-day average leads the state at 0.43%.

“While we have come so far in our fight against COVID and have been able to lift nearly all restrictions and get back to normal, our work is not yet over,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a written statement. “New Yorkers have worked hard to contain the spread of COVID throughout their communities but we all need to work together to get across the finish line. We need every single New Yorker to get vaccinated, so if you haven’t already, take advantage of the state’s ongoing incentive programs and get your vaccination.”

It’s been a record low for 20 consecutive days and has declined for 73 consecutive days. The seven-day average for all five boroughs of New York City is below 0.5% for the first time since the pandemic began. The five COVID deaths across New York represent the lowest single-day death toll since September 28, 2020.
