ALBANY, N.Y. (WROC) — New York is teetering on the edge of a major lift of remaining coronavirus restrictions.

Last week Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that once 70% of New Yorkers 18 and older received at least one vaccine dose, most of the remaining COVID-19 restrictions would be lifted.

“When we hit 70%, then I feel comfortable saying to the people of this state we can relax virtually all restrictions,” Gov. Cuomo said last Monday.

As of Sunday afternoon, 69.7% of that age demographic statewide had received at least one vaccine dose, according to the governor’s office.

Gov. Cuomo Sunday announced that New York State’s single-day COVID-19 positivity rate dropped to 0.35%, a record low, and that New York’s 7-day average positivity rate was 0.42%Saturday and remains the lowest in the country, tied with Massachusetts.

“New York’s COVID-19 numbers continue to hit record lows and New Yorkers are ready to return to normal, and that’s why we’re reducing restrictions and providing vaccination incentives across New York State,” Cuomo said. “Vaccination is the key to our success, and New Yorkers who get vaccinated improve the public health and protect their families and friends. We can move forward into a bright future together, but we need anyone who hasn’t gotten the vaccine yet to make an appointment or simply walk into a site today.”
