New data from Governor Hochul's office shows that the spread of COVID-19 has slowed down statewide in the last few weeks.

There were just over 8,700 additional infections reported yesterday, which is a 90 % decline from when the number of cases peaked in the Empire State back on January 7th. The governor praised New Yorkers for doing their part to slow down the winter surge by wearing masks, getting vaccinated against the virus, and staying home when they're sick. The Capital Region's seven-day average COVID-19 positivity rate is 9.8 %, down from 13,7 % last week.
