“COVID-19 is spreading, and it affects all New Yorkers, upstate and downstate. This is a war and we continue to adapt to the enemy by making decisions based on data and science — not opinion and fear,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said. “We’re closely monitoring hospital capacity and have implemented triggers to ensure hospitals have what they need. The light at the end of the tunnel is the vaccine, and one is coming, but until then we must be disciplined. We will win this war but it will take vigilance and everyone working together.”
