NY Governor Cuomo: Avoid interaction with others during the holidays

/

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that 219,442 COVID-19 test results were reported to New York State on Wednesday—a new record high for the second straight day.

“All the global experts say the same thing: This virus has phases, and as the phase changes your plan should change. We’re seeing an increase with the numbers across the country and within our own state. It started with the fall, and it’s going to continue and probably worsen in the winter,” Governor Cuomo said. “As we go through the holidays and winter months, it’s going to be more imperative than ever for New Yorkers to wear their masks, wash their hands, avoid gatherings large and small, and stay New York Tough.”
