Fireworks across New York celebrate the end of COVID-19 restrictions

New York State

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Firework displays across New York at approximately 9:15 p.m. celebrated the end of the state’s COVID-19 restrictions, which were officially lifted Tuesday afternoon.

You can watch fireworks from around the state in the video players below.

Gov. Cuomo made the announcement after the CDC reported 70.0% of New Yorkers age 18 or older have received at least the first dose of a vaccine. That was the threshold Cuomo said would trigger the relaxing of most restrictions. The CDC says 50.3% of all New Yorkers are fully vaccinated.
