State Covid-19 Rate Declines; Long Island at 6.3 Percent

Gov.Andrew M. Cuomo said Sunday that the state’s 7-day average COVID-19 positivity rate has declined for the 23rd consecutive day.

However, Long Island continues to lead the state infection rate, at 6.33 percent, even as the percentage declines.

We’ve dealt with a holiday surge driven by increased social activity, the surge is reducing, and the state’s 7-day average positivity rate has declined for 23 straight days, which is a significant trend,” Cuomo said. “As we continue to vaccinate as many New Yorkers as supply will allow, with our expansive distribution network ready to vaccinate significantly more people, it’s critical that New Yorkers stay safe. In the here and now, the news is very good, but keep an eye on the U.K. variants and the other variants because all of them suggest more diligence will be needed.”
