Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that according to Johns Hopkins University, New York State has the nation’s lowest 7-day average COVID-19 positivity rate at 0.44 percent.

“We’re beating back COVID-19 across the state and New York has the nation’s lowest 7-day average positivity rate, but it’s going to take more vaccinations to get us across the finish line,” Governor Cuomo said. “The more shots we get in arms, the healthier our state becomes, and that’s why we’re offering exciting incentives for vaccinations.
