Covid-19 Rate Declines in Suffolk County

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Sunday that the state’s COVID-19 hospitalizations have dropped to 410—a new low since March 16. The state’s COVID-19 infection rate has been less than 1 percent for 30 straight days. 

  Long Island’s rate of new infections fell to 1.1 percent, from 1.5 the day before, with 58 new cases reported.

There have been 45,282 total in Suffolk County, with 5,572  cases total in Huntington; 1,460 cases have occurred in Huntington Station. 

“We know based on experience that an incremental, data-driven reopening is the best way to protect the health and safety of all New Yorkers. As this virus continues to be a national crisis, it’s clear that caution is a virtue, not a vice,”  Cuomo said. “Our infection rate has been below 1 percent for 30 days, and New Yorkers can help us keep that streak going by wearing masks, socially distancing and washing their hands. Our actions today determine the rate of infection tomorrow, so as the Labor Day weekend continues, I urge everyone to be smart so we don’t see a spike in the weeks ahead.”
