Covid-19 Positivity Rate Hits 4.27% in State

The statewide Covid-19 positivity rate hit 4.27 percent, Gov. Andrew M.Cuomo said Sunday.  Another 55 Covid-19 deaths were recorded, including two in Suffolk County.

 “I expect you’re going to see the rate going up through the holiday season,” Cuomo said. “This is a new phase for COVID — call it the winter phase or the holiday phase or the surge upon surge phase — and we are spending this weekend talking to health officials and local governments about the plan for that next phase. We’ll be speaking to that tomorrow and this week with more details. In the meantime, everyone needs to stay vigilant: wear your mask, wash your hands, maintain social distance, and above all stay New York Tough.”
