Gov. Andrew Cuomo offered the following statement on Tuesday:
"New York state is one of only three states that are on track to contain the COVID-19 according to a study by Covid Act Now. We went from one of the highest infection rates to one of the lowest and we did it by making decisions based on the science, the data and the facts – not on politics.
"New York is finally coming back and I can't stress enough how important it is that we don't blow this incredible progress now. To all New Yorkers – wear a mask, get tested, socially distance, wash your hands and be smart."
