Governor Cuomo announced Monday that the New York State Fair in Syracuse is officially canceled this Summer.

While cases in New York are not increasing, coronavirus cases surging in other states is raising concern. Cuomo says the cancellation comes from an abundance of caution.

Cuomo says while the state's COVID-19 numbers continue in a positive direction, he's continuing to raise the alarm about case totals in other states. While other parts of the country have reported an increasing number of identified cases, Cuomo says New York has the lowest hospitalizations since March 18th. Still, he called it "frightening" that other regions are reporting increased numbers, saying an outbreak anywhere means a potential outbreak everywhere. Governor Cuomo went on to say that the state's contact tracers have tracked recent cases in New York back to people traveling from out of state.
