Governor’s Update On Covid Numbers

January 30, 2021

From Governor Cuomo:

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve gotten past the post-holiday spike and thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers, our infection rate continues to decline. In fact, if this current trajectory holds, we can open up indoor dining in New York City by Valentine’s Day, but actually getting to that point will be a consequence of our actions,” Governor Cuomo said. “We must continue taking steps to reopen our economy, but we have to do it smartly and safely. As New York continues to build out one of the nation’s most expansive vaccination networks to get as many shots in arms as possible, we must all remember to take responsibility at an individual level also and do what’s necessary for stamping out virus once and for all. The light at the end of the tunnel is within sight, it’s just going to take all of us staying tough and united to get there.”
