ALBANY, N.Y (WWTI) — Governor Kathy Hochul updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combating COVID-19 on Sunday.

“COVID-19 remains a threat to New Yorkers across the state, and it’s critical that we take decisive action to vaccinate more people and slow the spread,” Governor Hochul said. “We continue to implement important masking requirements to protect children and families, but getting shots in arms is the key to a safe and healthy future. Vaccines are available for free at convenient sites and millions of people have taken them, so I urge all New Yorkers who haven’t to get vaccinated immediately.”
