With the number of new COVID-19 cases reaching another record high, New York State is taking more steps to combat a winter surge of the virus.

Governor Hochul says the state is ordering millions of at-home coronavirus tests, opening more testing sites and sending more support staff to hospitals to help doctors and nurses treat a growing number of patients. The governor says there aren't any plans to close businesses or have schools to switch to remote learning. There were 23-thousand 391 new coronavirus cases reported Monday and the state's seven-day average COVID-19 infection rate is now seven-point-four percent.
