Governor Cuomo says state health officials are reviewing new masking guidelines issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The agency is recommending that people who are vaccinated against COVID-19 wear masks indoors in parts of the country where the number of new infections is rising. The CDC is also suggesting students, teachers and staff have a facial covering on while in school regardless of their vaccination status. The governor released a statement Tuesday saying New York beat back coronavirus before by staying smart and also following proper health and safety protocols.
