The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Yesterday, there were fewer than 17,000 COVID cases in the U.S. and New York, we saw a record-low positivity rate of 0.44 percent. And for the first time in over eight months, hospitalizations fell below 1,000. These numbers really show that vaccines work. New York is back, and that's a testament to the New Yorkers who have stayed tough and smart over the last year. The vaccines are safe, free, and effective, period, and the sooner we get each and every eligible New Yorker vaccinated, the sooner we can finish off this pandemic once and for all.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations are at 970. Of the 128,002 tests reported yesterday, 565, or 0.44 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 0.60 percent. There were 245 patients in ICU yesterday, down seven from the previous day. Of them, 143 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 10 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 65.7 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 77,131 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 19,226,670 total doses with 57.6 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. Yesterday, we announced the first 10 winners of the State's Vaccine Scholarship incentive. These 10 vaccinated New Yorkers will attend a SUNY or CUNY school with their tuition and room & board covered. And with four more drawings, there are still opportunities for a chance to win a full-ride, four-year scholarship to a state college or university. Learn more and get a shot to make your future. 

4. A new pop-up vaccination site will open at Belmont Park to coincide with the 2021 Belmont Stakes. The site will operate adjacent to the Clubhouse Entrance of Belmont Park on Friday, June 4, from 12pm to 6pm and on Saturday, June 5, from 9am to 5pm. Racing fans who get vaccinated at the site will receive complimentary general admission to the 2022 Belmont Stakes.

5. Starting June 11, Citi Field will expand vaccinated seating capacity. The stadium will expand its vaccinated seating to 90 percent of the stadium for Mets home games. More fans, more energy—another reason to get vaccinated. Excelsior Pass is accepted at Citi Field as proof of vaccination.

6. The New York International Auto Show will return to the Javits Center this August. Thanks to the expansion at the Javits Center, the event will be held at pre-pandemic levels. Tickets for the auto show go on sale June 30.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": The Peregrine falcon chicks nesting at the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge need your help—they need names! Visitors to the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge can cast their vote for the three chicks that hatched this spring. Voting will be held through Sunday, June 6."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"New Yorkers are continuing to beat back COVID every day and as the numbers keep going down, we are able to get our economy back up and running and move our state into the future. Our 7-day average continues its decline and the positivity rate in every region is below 1.50 percent—the first time that's happened since September 25. Our priority remains getting more people vaccinated. You can help by talking to friends, family and neighbors and pointing them to resources so that they can get all their questions answered.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 1,032. Of the 50,528 tests reported yesterday, 391, or 0.77 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 0.65 percent. There were 255 patients in ICU yesterday, up three from the previous day. Of them, 138 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 8 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 65.3 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 36,552 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 19,081,184 total doses with 57.1 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. The application for rental assistance opened today. The State will provide $3.5 billion in assistance for renters and small businesses experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Applications for the program will be accepted starting June 1 for eligible New Yorkers who are behind on their rent and have suffered financial hardship due to COVID-19. The New York State Emergency Rental Assistance Program will provide assistance with up to 12 months of past-due rent, three months of prospective rental assistance and 12 months of utility arrears payments to eligible New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status.

4. New York's 'Vax & Scratch' program has been extended through June 4. Get vaccinated at any of 10 state vaccination sites and receive a free NYS Lottery scratch off ticket with a grand prize of $5 million. Must be 18 or older to participate. Learn more.

5. The midnight curfew on indoor dining is now lifted. During the month of May we took major steps towards reopening our economy and as of May 31, we have lifted the midnight curfew on indoor dining for bars and restaurants across New York.

6. Today the Toronto Blue Jays play their first game at Sahlen Field in Buffalo with a fully vaccinated section. In partnership with New York State and the Buffalo Bisons and Erie County Medical Center, a new vaccination site at the field will provide vouchers for free Bisons tickets and participation in a raffle for other prizes for anyone who gets vaccinated there.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": Over Memorial Day weekend, local Boy Scouts honored our fallen soldiers by laying flags on the graves of 120 veterans. Boy Scout Troop 208 of Fairport, NY, visited the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery and laid flags to honor soldiers who fought to protect our freedoms. A great demonstration of respect and patriotism from young New Yorkers."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"New Yorkers have worked hard to contain the spread of the virus and their tireless efforts are being proven more and more successful every day. Yesterday, the State recorded the lowest positivity rate since August 27 and our 7-day positivity rate has been declining for 52 straight days. As we head into Memorial Day weekend, I encourage New Yorkers to remain vigilant, celebrate responsibly and if you haven't already—get vaccinated. On Monday, we will take a moment to remember our fallen servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives to protect our freedoms and our security. Have a nice and safe weekend.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. Schools will reopen for full in-person learning this September. Based on the current COVID trajectory, all New York State schools will reopen for full in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year. There is no substitute for in-person learning and as things currently stand, there is no reason why our students should not get back to in-person learning as usual.

2. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 1,223. Of the 162,450 tests reported yesterday, 1,055, or 0.65 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 0.81 percent. There were 300 patients in ICU yesterday, up three from the previous day. Of them, 177 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 10 New Yorkers to the virus.

3. As of 11am this morning, 64.4 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 87,791 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 18,715,969 total doses with 55.8 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

4. Get a shot to make your future. New Yorkers age 12 to 17 who get vaccinated (or already have gotten vaccinated) can enter for a chance to win a 4-year full-ride scholarship to any public college or university in New York State. Fifty total winners will be chosen at five random drawings. The scholarship includes full tuition, room and board, as well as an allowance for books and supplies. Parents can learn more here: ny.gov/vaccinescholarship.

5. Reminder that New Yorkers are entitled to a paid sick day if they need a day to recover after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Labor is issuing guidance to all employers that any necessary recovery period from the COVID-19 vaccine is covered by New York's Paid Sick Leave Law. This builds on legislation granting public and private employees time off to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

6. The pop-up vaccination sites at Grand Central Terminal and Penn Station will be extended for another week. New Yorkers can get a free seven-day MetroCard or a free round-trip Long Island Rail Road or Metro-North ticket after receiving the vaccine at these pop-up sites.

7. The Saratoga Race Course will reopen to fans on July 15. In conjunction with the New York Racing Association, today we announced that Saratoga Race Course will reopen to fans at near full capacity when the 2021 summer meet begins on July 15. In addition, all fans who show proof of vaccination through Excelsior Pass, or alternate forms of proof, will receive free grandstand general admission. 

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": With the help of her classmates, a New York school athlete diagnosed with cancer returned to the racetrack and crossed the finish line. Shenendehowa High School senior Yeva Klingbeil was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma in November 2019 but was able to participate in her team's 4x2 relay race at this week's track meet. After crossing the finish line, her teammates rushed to congratulate Yeva, filling the air with chants and applause. Read more. "

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Since its launch in March, more than 1 million Excelsior Passes have been retrieved—a great milestone. After a long and incredibly difficult year, New Yorkers are finally returning to the things they missed amid rising vaccination rates, and Excelsior Pass is a great tool for doing so. Excelsior Pass is a voluntary, free and secure way to present digital proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results. You can use Excelsior Pass at major sports venues—including Madison Square Garden and the Barclays Center—or simply as a convenient backup to your physical CDC card. Learn more: ny.gov/excelsiorpass.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 1,305, the lowest since November 4. Of the 85,019 tests reported yesterday, 929, or 1.09 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 0.90 percent. There were 303 patients in ICU yesterday, down 12 from the previous day. Of them, 185 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 14 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 63.7 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 63,443 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 18,441,242 total doses with 54.9 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. Get vaccinated and get a free State Park pass. Today we announced the "Shot in the Park" incentive—anyone who gets vaccinated between May 24 and May 31 will receive a free two-day pass to any New York State Park. Additionally, 15 New York State Parks will host pop-up COVID-19 vaccination sites, offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on a first-come, first-served basis. 

4. Join us virtually tomorrow for a webinar on women's health and the COVID-19 vaccine. On Tuesday, May 25 at 4pm ET, a panel of top New York medical experts will discuss the effects of the COVID-19 vaccine on women's bodies at all stages of life and explore how the vaccine can protect the health of young people. Attendees will have the opportunity to directly ask questions about the vaccine including topics such as fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding and vaccinating youth. No judgment—just an open conversation with experts. You can register to attend the webinar here

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A Buffalo father attended the same school as his daughter to earn his bachelor's degree and this year they graduated at the same time. Cesar Galarza graduated from SUNY Buffalo with a degree in social work where his daughter, Clarimar, was already studying art education. At this year's ceremony, the father-daughter duo graduated with honors as part of SUNY Buffalo's Class of 2021. Congratulations to both Galarzas. "

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Yesterday marked a milestone in our fight against COVID. New York adopted the CDC's updated guidance on masks and social distancing and many business capacity restrictions have been lifted. This major reopening of our state means that 400 days after New York was the first state in the country to implement a mask mandate, fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to use a face covering in most public places. However, the steps taken this week don't mean that COVID has officially been relegated to the history books. We need to stay vigilant and help get even more New Yorkers vaccinated. But New York is coming back, and it's a testament to the strength and grit of New Yorkers who stayed tough over the last year and a half.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 1,490, the lowest since November 8. Of the 186,078 tests reported yesterday, 1,583, or 0.85 percent, were positive—the lowest since September 11. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.02 percent. There were 339 patients in ICU yesterday, down 23 from the previous day. Of them, 208 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 18 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 62.7 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 170,343 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 18,025,115 total doses with 53.5 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. Today the State announced the "Vax and Scratch" lottery program. This program provides free NYS Lottery scratch-off tickets to individuals 18 and over with a grand prize of $5 million. The program will initially include 10 vaccination sites in the New York City, Long Island, Mid-Hudson, Central New York, Finger Lakes, Mohawk Valley and Western New York regions. The sites will be open from Monday, May 24 to Friday, May 28. All sites will be open from 8am to 7pm. 

4. Take a flight, take a shot at seven new pop-up vaccination sites at New York airports. From May 24 to May 28, seven new pop-up vaccination sites will open at airports in New York City, White Plains, Albany, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo. The sites will open for walk-in vaccinations on a first-come, first-served basis utilizing the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

5. County fairs and local festivals can be held this summer so long as local governments permit them and consider COVID-19 health guidelines. County fairs and local festivals must ensure that the total number of attendees is limited so that six feet of distance can be maintained between individuals who are not members of the same party, unless all attendees present proof of full vaccination status. Fairs and festivals may require masks for all attendees, and per CDC guidance masks are required for unvaccinated attendees in certain settings, and indoors where vaccination status is unknown.

6. We announced updated guidance for health and safety measures at child care, day camp, and overnight camp programs, effective May 19. The measures include protocols for COVID testing, physical distancing and sanitation, among other requirements to help prevent COVID-19 cases. The Department of Health will continue to monitor and evaluate health metrics for child care facilities and camp programs and, if necessary, will issue further guidance.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": Tomorrow, the "Little Island" park in New York City will open to the public. This newly developed park, built above the Hudson River at the old Pier 55, will provide New Yorkers and visitors alike with two acres of stunning green space and views. Arts and entertainment programming will start next month. Access to Little Island will be provided as timed entry reservations."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Last week, the CDC announced new guidance on mask use and social distancing for fully vaccinated individuals, and beginning Wednesday, May 19, New York State will adopt the new guidance. Until more New Yorkers are fully vaccinated, pre-K to 12 schools, public transit, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, nursing homes, and health care settings will continue to follow State's existing COVID-19 health guidelines. New Yorkers have worked hard over the past year to keep others safe and that has paid off and we are ecstatic to take this next step in the reopening of our beautiful state. The people of New York and visitors alike should take solace in the lifting of mask requirements, but be respectful of those who may still feel safest wearing their mask in public. Business owners can establish policy within the broad framework as they see best. It's a great milestone and yet another incentive to get vaccinated if you haven't already.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 1,581, the lowest since November 9. Of the 101,173 tests reported yesterday, 1,278, or 1.26 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.11 percent. There were 387 patients in ICU yesterday, down five from the previous day. Of them, 228 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 11 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 61.8 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 70,722 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 17,626,145 total doses with 52.2 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. Three new pop-up vaccination sites will open in collaboration with the MTA. Following a successful pilot, the new pop-up sites will be located at the following stations: 125th Street in Manhattan, Sutphin Boulevard-Archer Avenue-JFK Airport in Queens, and the LIRR's Hicksville train station. (See hours here.) If you get vaccinated at one of these stations, you will get a free 7-day MetroCard or commuter rail tickets. Four other pop-up sites (including Grand Central and Penn Station) will continue to operate. 

4. Starting May 22, the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets will have fully vaccinated fan sections. This will increase capacity at their 2021 NBA home playoff games at Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center. Individuals seated in the vaccinated sections will have to show proof of full COVID-19 immunization status, which can be provided through paper form (CDC card), digital application or the State's Excelsior Pass

5. The New York City Marathon will return for its 50th running this year on November 7. The NYC Marathon—the world's biggest—will return with 33,000 runners permitted. Registration for the marathon opens June 8.

6. Radio City Music Hall will open its doors for the first time in over a year to host the Tribeca Festival's Closing Night film on Saturday, June 19. For this event, Radio City Music Hall will operate at 100 percent capacity with a fully vaccinated audience. The Tribeca Film Festival will be the first in-person film festival to take place in North America since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Additional details about the landmark event and screening for closing night will be announced soon.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A community came together amid beautiful weather to spend the weekend beautifying their city. Over 200 volunteers in Buffalo gathered in the University District to participate in a spring cleanup event. The volunteers from all over the city spent the sunny Saturday weeding, planting flowers, picking up trash and other cleanup-related tasks."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"As we near the light at the end of the COVID tunnel, it is imperative that we vaccinate as many people as possible. Our numbers remain on the decline but COVID is still out there, and if we let down our guard, we risk losing all the progress we have made. Our providers are working hard to get more shots into arms, and I urge everyone who still needs to get their shot to do so quickly—for themselves and for everyone they care about and want to protect

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 1,767. Of the 203,852 tests reported yesterday, 2,068, or 1.01 percent, were positive—the lowest since October 10. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.22 percent. There were 415 patients in ICU yesterday, down 18 from the previous day. Of them, 247 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 25 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 61.2 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 140,551 total doses have been administered.

The outdoor event, sponsored by the Vein Treatment Center, features a range of military and civilian aerial performers. This year's show will be a ticketed event, with reduced capacity and social distancing measures in place to ensure a safe return of the exciting Western New York tradition.

4. The New York State Museum, Library, and Archives in Albany will reopen Monday, May 17. The State Education Department's Cultural Education Center reopens to the public on Monday, May 17, with new COVID-19 protocols in place and adjusted hours. Learn more

To help revitalize New York's economy safely, the State launched Excelsior Pass—a free and voluntary platform for businesses and individuals that can be used to easily access secure proof of a recent negative COVID test or vaccination. Learn more.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A few weeks ago, we wrote about a peregrine falcon couple nesting on the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. We can share the happy update that the falcons' eggs have hatched and the chicks are healthy. You can keep up with the peregrine falcon family on the bridge's Falcon Camera."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Late last night, the New York State Clinical Advisory Task Force approved the use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for 12 - 15-year-olds. This approval allowed us to begin administering the vaccine to this newly eligible age group today. Reminder: All New York State vaccination sites are open for walk-in appointments to all eligible individuals. You can also make an appointment online through the Am I Eligible tool or by calling 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829). Let's get vaccinated, New York.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 1,852. Of the 204,531 tests reported yesterday, 2,216, or 1.08 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.25 percent. There were 433 patients in ICU yesterday, down 30 from the previous day. Of them, 258 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 22 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 60.9 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 111,885 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 17,166,220 total doses with 50.4 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. The moratorium on disconnecting utilities is extended until the COVID-19 state of emergency is lifted or December 31, 2021. This week, I signed legislation extending a moratorium that prevents utility companies from disconnecting utilities to residential households and small businesses that are struggling with their bills due to pandemic-related hardship. The moratorium is extended for a period of 180 days after the COVID-19 state of emergency is lifted or 180 days after December 31, 2021, whichever is earlier. 

4. I signed legislation protecting New Yorkers' COVID stimulus payments from debt collectors. All relief payments to New Yorkers under these federal acts, including stimulus payments, tax refunds, rebates, and tax credits to support individuals and children qualified for or received prior to the effective date, will be protected. 

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A 10-year-old boy earned the title of National Chess Master, becoming the 28th youngest person to do so. Tanitoluwa "Tani" Adewumi, a refugee from Nigeria, won the New York state chess championship in 2019 and has continued to hone his skills to win the national title on May 1. Next up in Tani's chess ambitions is to become the world's youngest grandmaster."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"The COVID numbers continue to trend in the right direction. For the first time since November 15, COVID hospitalizations have dropped below 2,000. Our statewide positivity rate dropped to 1.10 percent—the lowest since October 17. On top of that, 50 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed their vaccine series. We are hitting critical milestones but we must keep up this progress in our fight against the virus.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 1,928. Of the 165,892 tests reported yesterday, 1,830, or 1.10 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.28 percent. There were 463 patients in ICU yesterday, down 28 from the previous day. Of them, 270 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 26 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 60.7 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 116,093 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 17,054,335 total doses with 50.0 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. In anticipation of Memorial Day, beaches and pools will operate with six-foot social distancing. That means more capacity for beachgoers and swimmers as we approach the summer. New York State's goal is to reopen them to 100 percent capacity by July 4.

4. Five new pop-up vaccination sites will open soon at public transit stations in the Buffalo and Niagara areas. The sites will welcome walk-ins on a first-come-first-serve basis and administer the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The NFTA will provide a free seven-day transit pass to people who get vaccinated at these sites. More details to come soon.

5. For the first time in 105 years, fans can watch Major League Baseball in Buffalo. On June 1, the Toronto Blue Jays will play opening day at Sahlen Field (their temporary home) with a fully vaccinated fan section. Approximately 50 percent of the stadium's available seating will be used for fully vaccinated fans (who will be seated normally), with the remainder of seats designated for unvaccinated fans (who will be socially distanced). This model will allow 2,000 additional fans to enjoy games in Buffalo. Sahlen Field will also serve as a free vaccination site for anyone going to the game who wants to get the vaccine.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": Artist Maya Lin has set up a new art installation in New York City to raise awareness about climate change. This "Ghost Forest" installation in Madison Square Park uses barren Atlantic White Cedar trees from the Pine Barrens to demonstrate how rising sea levels affect our forests. The otherworldly exhibit will be on display until November 14."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"As New Yorkers continue to get vaccinated each day, we are focused on rebuilding our state's economy and look forward to a new economic future for New York. Today we announced the launch of "Reimagine, Rebuild, Renew," a multimedia campaign designed to support the state's reopening and to drive economic recovery. This campaign will promote our commitment to growing the economy, improving our infrastructure and helping small businesses as we build back from this pandemic. I hope you'll join us in ushering in a reimagined New York.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations rose slightly to 2,026. Of the 99,656 tests reported yesterday, 1,516, or 1.52 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.34 percent. There were 491 patients in ICU yesterday, down two from the previous day. Of them, 290 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 32 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 60.4 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 111,833 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 16,938,242 total doses with 49.4 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. The FDA expanded the emergency use authorization of the Pfizer vaccine to include people ages 12-15. Tomorrow, the CDC's vaccine advisory committee, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), will meet publicly to review data and discuss whether to recommend the vaccine for this age group to the CDC director. Following the review, State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker will meet with New York State's Clinical Advisory Task Force and make a final recommendation, which means we could have full authorization for vaccinations to begin for 12- to 15-year-olds here in New York as early as Thursday.

4. New York will participate in the federal partnership with Uber and Lyft to help vaccinate New Yorkers. Today, the White House announced a new partnership with ridesharing companies Uber and Lyft, which will offer free rides to and from vaccination sites from May 24 to July 4. More details will be forthcoming.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": With baseball back, a Syracuse Mets fan was able to attend his 50th consecutive opening day game. Fairmont resident David Smolnycki has been attending opening day since he was sixteen. Although the 2020 season was canceled due to the pandemic, Smolnycki was able to reunite with his baseball family after 614 days, returning to MacArthur Stadium to resume his streak."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"As the progress in the fight against COVID continues, we are taking new action to bring the vaccine directly to New Yorkers. From May 12 through May 16, eight new pop-up vaccination sites will open at MTA stations in the New York City, Long Island and Mid-Hudson regions. Getting a shot at these pop-up sites also comes with a perk: You will get a free seven-day MetroCard or a free round-trip Long Island Rail Road or Metro-North ticket. The more New Yorkers are vaccinated, the safer our state is for everyone, and we'll continue to pursue all avenues to encourage people to get vaccinated. So stop by an MTA pop-up site, roll up your sleeve and let's get vaccinated, New York.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 2,016. Of the 110,541 tests reported yesterday, 1,580, or 1.43 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.40 percent. There were 493 patients in ICU yesterday, down 18 from the previous day. Of them, 301 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 27 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 60.2 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 112,510 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 16,826,409 total doses with 48.9 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. Nassau Coliseum will have a fully vaccinated fan section for the New York Islanders playoff games which are anticipated to start on May 19. To end the Islanders' last season at the Coliseum, 50 percent of the Coliseum will be used as a fully vaccinated fan section with attendees spaced approximately 3 feet apart—an unoccupied seat between each party—in assigned, seated sections that are designated solely for fully vaccinated individuals. Playoff tickets go on sale tomorrow, May 11.

4. All SUNY and CUNY schools will require vaccinations for all in-person students beginning Fall 2021. This requirement is subject to the FDA providing a full approval for the vaccine, beyond the current emergency use authorization. Certain medical and religious exemptions will be permitted. I encourage all private colleges & universities to require vaccinations as well.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": This Mother's Day weekend, foster care parents in New York City were honored for their care and service. May is also National Foster Care Month and the Children's Village, a charitable organization, awarded five foster care parents awards for their contributions towards the children they fostered. Sharon Johnson received the "Longest Service Foster Parent" award; she has been caring for foster children for more than 35 years."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"New Yorkers have been amazing in acting for the good of the group throughout the pandemic, and as we near the light at the end of this COVID tunnel, we must continue to work together. Remember that all New York State-operated vaccination sites are open for walk-ins on a first-come, first-serve basis. And if you prefer to schedule an appointment, you can do so on the Am I Eligible App or by calling 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829). Our providers are working around the clock to get as many shots in arms as possible, and we as a society must all do our part.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 2,264. Of the 194,988 tests reported yesterday, 2,370, or 1.22 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.53 percent. There were 571 patients in ICU yesterday, down 34 from the previous day. Of them, 354 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 25 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 59.4 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 161,388 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 16,395,758 total doses with 47.0 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. The federal government is accepting applications for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund. If you're a restaurant owner, caterer, or food business owner, I encourage you to take a look and apply.

4. In the third round of the program, Nourish NY has spent $9 million to help New Yorkers in need. So far, over eight million pounds of raw milk has been turned into dairy products and distributed by food banks, along with over 2.5 million pounds of produce. Over five million meals have been made for households in need using products sourced from New York farms.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A local barber in Amsterdam, NY, is hoping to use community support to inspire local high schoolers to attend college. Understanding the struggle many went through during COVID, barber Jay Blendz started "Books N' Blendz," a $2,000 scholarship fund to help high school seniors in his community with their post-graduation pursuits. The scholarship will be given to four high school graduates to use toward tuition, books and room and board."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"New Yorkers' hard work continues to pay off as our numbers improve further. Yesterday, New York recorded a positivity rate of 1.27 percent—the lowest-single day COVID-19 positivity rate since October 22. And as we make positive progress toward defeating COVID, we can incrementally reopen our economy based on the science and data. This is all good news, but we aren't through this pandemic yet. We will get past COVID, but only if we do it together, so we need every single New Yorker to do their part by taking precautions from the virus and getting vaccinated so we can begin to recover, reimagine and rebuild.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 2,335, the lowest since November 18. Of the 203,644 tests reported yesterday, 2,585, or 1.27 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.62 percent, the lowest since November 3. There were 605 patients in ICU yesterday, down five from the previous day. Of them, 371 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 23 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 59.1 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 162,592 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 16,234,370 total doses with 46.3 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

3. Today I'm proud to have signed the NY HERO Act into law. When COVID hit, it was clear that many employers weren't taking adequate steps to protect their employees. This first-in-the-nation legislation will create stronger worker protections & prepare us for the next public health crisis.

4. The Crossgates Mall in Albany will offer discounts for New Yorkers who get vaccinated. Participating stores and tenants of Crossgates Mall in Albany will begin offering discounts and special offers to individuals who have been vaccinated at their mass vaccination site. Formerly located at the SUNY Albany campus, the mass vaccination site now located at Crossgates Mall site has administered over 200,000 vaccinations since opening in January.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": On National Nurses Day, some New Yorkers who recovered from COVID were reunited with the nurses who saved them. With some help from the "Today" show, Brian Morales and John Tillotson surprised the nurses from New York's Northwell Health hospitals with flowers to thank them for their care and hard work during the pandemic. And a big shout-out and thank you to all of New York's nurses for everything they've done for our state."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Our safe and careful economic recovery and reopening continues. Beginning May 19, large-scale outdoor event venues will welcome more people and only be limited by the capacity necessary to comply with the CDC social distancing rules. This applies to outdoor music concerts, live entertainment, baseball games, horse races and more. Additionally, fully vaccinated attendees at these events may be seated at full capacity in assigned sections—providing another incentive for New Yorkers to get vaccinated. And in great news, the New York Yankees and the New York Mets, along with the State Department of Health, are teaming up to offer the COVID vaccine at their stadiums for fans at games. There's another perk, too: If you're going to a Yankees or Mets game and get vaccinated while there, you'll get a free ticket to a future game. This announcement is good for baseball fans—and good for public health.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. The show will go on! Broadway theaters are ready to reopen at 100% capacity beginning September 14, and tickets will go on sale starting tomorrow. Broadway is a major part of our state's identity and our economy, so we're glad the curtain will rise again.

2. New York has extended legislation that provides critical support to homeowners and business owners experiencing hardship due to the pandemic. The COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020 and the COVID-19 Emergency Protect Our Small Businesses Act will be extended until August 31. This means that current protections prohibiting residential and commercial evictions, foreclosure proceedings, credit discrimination and negative credit reporting related to the COVID-19 pandemic, will continue as the State marches on the road to recovery.

3. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 2,458, the lowest since November 21. Of the 165,597 tests reported yesterday, 2,463, or 1.49 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity was 1.71 percent, the lowest since November 4. There were 610 patients in ICU yesterday, down five from the previous day. Of them, 379 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 31 New Yorkers to the virus.

4. As of 11am this morning, 58.8 percent of adult New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 189,760 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 16,071,788 total doses with 45.6 percent of adult New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See additional data on the State's Vaccine Tracker.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": One of the rarest butterflies in the world is making an unexpected comeback thanks to ecologically conscious farming. The Duke of Burgundy butterfly—a small butterfly with gold and brown wings—was Britain's rarest butterfly only a decade ago. But its population has surged by 25 percent. Ecologists believe this is because of a few major farms that have committed to devoting at least 10 percent of their land to wildlife, under a government-supported program. This in turn has improved the entire ecosystem and likely saved the Duke of Burgundy butterfly from the brink of extinction."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"New Yorkers have embodied the spirit of New York Tough, and it shows in our numbers more and more every day. As the rate of vaccinations increases and the rate of infection decreases we are able to accelerate the reopening. I urge those who have yet to be vaccinated to protect themselves, their families and their communities and to roll up your sleeve. We are all in this together.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations are at 2,573. Of the 96,747 tests reported yesterday, 2,173, or 2.25 percent, were positive. The 7-day average percent positivity rate was 1.76 percent.

4. New York State announced a historic investment in child care. The COVID pandemic only exacerbated the problems and inequities that already existed in our society, and as we continue to rebuild and recover, child care will play a critical role in getting New Yorkers back to work and reopening our economy. The investments included in the year's budget will help support both working families and the child care providers that have been so essential during these unprecedented times. Learn more.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A Texas woman who served as a school custodian is now a much-loved teacher at the same school. Wanda Smith worked long hours as a bus monitor and then a custodian for the Brenham Elementary School in Texas, but she never lost sight of her dream of eventually becoming a teacher. After nine years, during which she attended night classes, Smith earned a bachelor's degree and became a certified teacher. She returned to Brenham Elementary to teach first grade and has inspired her students and the entire community. "When I stand in front of my classroom, I am living my dream" she told The Today Show."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"As we continue our progress against COVID-19 in New York, we're able to take additional steps to reopen our economy and help businesses and workers. Today, in union with New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont, we announced the easing of pandemic restrictions related to the tri-state region's businesses, venues and gatherings. Most capacity limits will be lifted on May 19, including retail, food services, gyms and fitness centers, amusement and family entertainment, hair salons, barbershops and other personal care services. Capacity limits for houses of worship will also lift. New York is back, but it's critical to maintain the progress that got us here—and we can do that by getting the vaccine. In New York, we've made it as easy as we can. Walk into any New York State vaccination site, walk out with the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. Beginning May 17, the MTA will resume full 24-hour subway service. The MTA will continue its unprecedented disinfection and cleaning effort. The resumption of 24-hour service will coincide with the lifting of the 12am food and beverage service curfew for outdoor dining areas.

2. COVID hospitalizations are at 2,539. Of the 113,139 tests reported yesterday, 2,200, or 1.94 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 1.79 percent. There were 613 patients in ICU yesterday, down 24 from the previous day. Of them, 379 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 37 New Yorkers to the virus.

3. As of 11am this morning, 46.6 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 91,035 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 15,734,364 total doses with 35.2 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

4. Event venues can expand capacity starting May 19. Large-scale indoor event venues will operate at 30 percent capacity. Large-scale outdoor event venues will operate at 33 percent. Social distancing, masks, and other applicable health protocols will still apply, including the requirement that attendees have proof of full vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test result.

5. We will expand residential gathering limits. The outdoor residential gathering limits of 25 people will be removed on May 19, and the indoor residential gathering limit will increase from 10 to 50 people.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A 79-year-old man in Alberta, Canada, went to beauty school to help his wife of 50 years with her hair and makeup after her eyesight started failing. Knowing how much his wife enjoyed doing her hair and makeup, the husband (who wished to stay anonymous) went to Delmar College of Hair and Esthetics to take lessons so he could step in to help."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Today we're further easing restrictions on restaurants, personal care services and gyms. Our progress makes this possible. On May 7, indoor dining in NYC, hair salons, barber shops and other personal care services will expand to 75 percent capacity. And beginning May 15, gyms and fitness centers can expand to 50 percent capacity. This is all good news, but we're not out of the woods yet. Our progress is directly related to what we do and how we act. Until we've beaten COVID once and for all we must continue the precautions we know work to stop the spread—wearing masks, staying socially distanced and, most importantly, getting vaccinated.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 2,837. Of the 220,074 tests reported yesterday, 3,868, or 1.76 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 1.93 percent. There were 666 patients in ICU yesterday, down 25 from the previous day. Of them, 423 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 44 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 46.0 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 218,676 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 15,389,526 total doses with 34.1 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

3. The State will distribute $6.7 million in relief aid to New York's seafood, marine commercial, and for-hire fishing industries. This aid comes after excessive business losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. New York State will distribute an additional $5.7 million in the coming months, for a total of $12.4 million, through the Marine Fisheries Relief Program, which administers federal funding provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.

4. The Executive Order establishing the micro-cluster zone strategy will be rescinded in light of our continued progress. Due to improving numbers, it's time to loosen some restrictions put in place to protect the public health and help our local businesses. Applicable state public health guidance must still be followed for all industries.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A hospital volunteer who has dedicated nearly half of her life to helping others celebrated her 100th birthday on April 12. Marian Hakanson rang in her centennial birthday at the Northridge Hospital in Los Angeles, where she has been volunteering for the past 25 years. Prior to her stint at Northridge, Hakanson spent 25 years volunteering at a children's hospital."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"With more than 15 million doses administered across the State, we are looking forward to accelerating the safe and responsible reopening of our state. If you haven't gotten the vaccine yet, I encourage you to do so as soon as you can—all you have to do is show up at any New York State or New York City-run vaccination center, which now accept walk-in appointments for all New Yorkers age 16 and older. If you have already gotten the vaccine, you can be of immense help by spreading the word about the increased availability of the vaccine to friends, family members or neighbors and help bring our state closer to the finish line.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 2,934, falling below 3,000 for the first time since November 24. Of the 226,068 tests reported yesterday, 4,073, or 1.80 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 1.98 percent. There were 691 patients in ICU yesterday, down 21 from the previous day. Of them, 425 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 38 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 45.6 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 250,711 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 15,170,850 total doses with 33.4 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

3. Today we announced a new pop-up site in Buffalo specifically for 16- to 25-year-olds. Younger people, including teenagers, have some of the highest COVID positivity rates of any age group. While generally less vulnerable to COVID-19 than older people, young people should still get vaccinated because they can still get seriously ill from COVID-19 and have long-term symptoms, and can also spread the virus to more vulnerable people. Over 1,000 doses will be dedicated to the pop-up site, and free bus passes will be available to help eligible residents get to the site.

4. The Buffalo Marathon will return on June 26 and June 27. This year will be the marathon's 20th anniversary, and the race will operate at roughly 50 percent of its typical capacity. Using the Buffalo Marathon as a model, the State's sports and recreation guidance will be updated with health protocols for running races to better help localities plan these events.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": After almost seven decades, two women who both appear in a 1950s Norman Rockwell painting were reunited. The women, Carolyn Fabricant and Charlotte Sorenson, were both high school students in Massachusetts when they posed for the famous American illustrator and artist, for a work called "Bright Future in Banking." The two women were reconnected after Fabricant read a New York Times article about the Rockwell work that mentioned Sorenson. The writer of the article, James Barron, helped arrange a Zoom reunion and the two women—who are immortalized on the canvas—were able to meet again in real life."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"The COVID numbers continue to point in the right direction, allowing us to increase economic activity even more. Beginning May 17, the 12am outdoor dining area curfew for bars and restaurants will be lifted. The 12am indoor dining area curfew will be lifted on May 31. We will also lift the 1am curfew for catered events where attendees have provided proof of vaccination status or a recent negative COVID-19 test result beginning May 17 (with the curfew for all catered events set to be lifted May 31). Lifting these restrictions will help businesses and bring us all closer to a new normal. However, we will only able to maintain this progress as more people get the COVID vaccine to protect themselves and our communities. With walk-in appointments available at all NYS mass vaccination sites beginning tomorrow—all you have to do is show up. If you've already gotten the vaccine, help us spread the word!

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 3,117, the lowest since November 26. Of the 173,527 tests reported yesterday, 3,146, or 1.81 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 2.02 percent. There were 712 patients in ICU yesterday, down 16 from the previous day. Of them, 444 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 32 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 45.1 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 217,141 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 14,920,139 total doses with 32.6 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

3. Starting May 3, seating will be allowed at bars in New York City. Lifting this restriction will make New York City consistent with the food services guidance currently in effect in the rest of the state.

4. Catered events can resume at private residences beginning May 3. Events can be held above the State's residential gathering of 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors, as long as the events adhere to safety guidelines and they are staffed by a professional, licensed caterer and do not violate any local or municipal laws.

5. Erie County is partnering with local breweries to help distribute the COVID-19 vaccines. As part of the "Shot and Chaser" program, participating breweries will set up pop-up vaccination clinics and adults age 21 and up can stop by for a vaccine and receive a beer on the house. The program also applies for the second shot. So far, Resurgence and Flying Bison brewing companies in South Buffalo have agreed to join the effort.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A gifted 12-year-old is receiving both a high school and college diploma in the same week. During the pandemic, Mike Wimmer from Salisbury, North Carolina, took extra dual enrollment classes and will receive an associate's degree from Rowan-Cabarrus Community College alongside his high school diploma from Concord Academy High School. Wimmer has a deep love for robotics and technology and said "[his] entrepreneurial goal is to build technology that enables people to live better lives."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"It's critical for us to make the vaccine as accessible as possible and provide all opportunities for New Yorkers to get vaccinated. Beginning Thursday, April 29, all New York State mass vaccination sites will open to eligible New Yorkers for walk-in vaccination on a first-come, first-serve basis for all. The walk-in appointments are reserved for first doses only—second-dose appointments will be scheduled immediately after New Yorkers receive their first dose. This new approach means any eligible New Yorker age 16 and older will be able to walk into any mass vaccination site and walk out with a shot in arm, eliminating the need to make an appointment online or by phone. We'll continue to work 24/7 to get the vaccine to communities across the state so everyone can be vaccinated. So roll up your sleeve and let's get vaccinated, New York.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. New York will adopt the new CDC mask guidance for fully vaccinated people. Fully vaccinated individuals can conduct outdoor activities or gather without wearing a mask outdoors except in certain crowded settings and venues. Read the full CDC guidance.

2. COVID hospitalizations rose slightly to 3,184. Of the 103,675 tests reported yesterday, 2,704, or 2.61 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 2.06 percent. There were 728 patients in ICU yesterday, down one from the previous day. Of them, 461 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 26 New Yorkers to the virus.

3. As of 11am this morning, 44.6 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 152,118 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 14,702,998 total doses with 31.9 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

4. The mass vaccination site at Binghamton University will relocate indoors. The mass vaccination site, currently located at 10 Gannett Drive in Johnson City, will move inside the building at the same address. The move will allow for increased capacity and protection from any adverse weather conditions.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": An arts project is using vacant New York City storefronts to spark interest in the arts and brighten up the community. Barbara Anderson created the Art on the Avenue NYC project and transformed storefronts in Greenwich Village into colorful galleries for local artists to feature their work. This is the project's second iteration; the first took place in June of last year on Columbus Avenue."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Mark your calendars—the Great New York State Fair will be returning this year. Today we announced the 2021 Reimagined New York State Fair, a special end-of-summer celebration at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse from August 20 to September 6. The Fair will feature New York's best food and drink, live music and entertainment, rides, and more in four different concurrent festivals that will take place exclusively in the outdoor areas of the fairgrounds. I hope it can serve as a unique celebration for New Yorkers who have made so many sacrifices during this pandemic, while allowing visitors from across the state and the country to enjoy some of the best attractions the Fair has to offer with all necessary safety guidelines in place. This is an important step towards the full return of New York's largest events as we continue to reopen and reimagine our state's economy.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 3,174. Of the 126,953 tests reported yesterday, 3,039, or 2.39 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 2.13 percent. There were 729 patients in ICU yesterday, down 25 from the previous day. Of them, 454 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 41 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 44.3 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 115,854 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 14,550,880 total doses with 31.4 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

3. On May 15, offices, gyms, and casinos and gaming facilities will expand capacity. Gyms and fitness centers outside of New York City will increase from 33 percent to 50 percent capacity. Casinos and gaming facilities will increase from 25 percent to 50 percent. Offices will increase from 50 percent to 75 percent capacity.

4. On May 19, spectator capacity at large-scale outdoor event venues will increase. These venues, including professional and collegiate sports and live performing arts and entertainment, will increase from 20 to 33 percent beginning May 19. This increase will coincide with the previously announced increase in large-scale indoor event venue capacity. Social distancing, masks, health screenings and all other State health and safety protocols remain in effect.

5. The online learner permit test for Class D (passenger vehicles) and Class M (motorcycles) is now available to New Yorkers statewide. The announcement comes after the launch of an online permit application pilot program last year. This new service allows New Yorkers to begin the permit application process and take the test from the comfort of their home, saving the customer significant time in the DMV office. 

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": For the Penfield High High School cheer team, April 17 holds a special meaning. On the day of their counties competition, Head Coach Jessica Bucinell went into labor and only 41 minutes after the safe delivery of her son, she streamed the team's routine from the operating table. The squad went on to win their first counties in school history and to celebrate, the team brought their victory plaque to Bucinell's recovery room at the hospital."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Throughout COVID, essential workers put their own safety on the line to ensure the rest of us could weather this pandemic and we owe them an enormous debt of gratitude for their tremendous service. Today, in partnership with SOMOS Community Care and Urban Health Plan, we announced five new pop-up vaccination sites that will take walk-in appointments for New York City bodega, grocery store and supermarket workers. Eligible New Yorkers can make appointments for the SOMOS sites here and for the Urban Health Plan site by calling 718-589-4755. These new pop-up vaccination sites are so important—they will make it easier for bodega, grocery store and supermarket workers, who have worked every single day to provide an essential service, to get vaccinated and protect themselves, their families and communities from COVID-19.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 3,387, the lowest since November 28. Of the 240,930 tests reported yesterday, 4,901, or 2.03 percent, were positive. That is the lowest single-day positivity rate since November 5. The 7-day average positivity rate was 2.45 percent. There were 786 patients in ICU yesterday, down 25 from the previous day. Of them, 483 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 45 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 43.4 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 184,119 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 14,124,641 total doses with 30.2 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

3. Six additional New York companies will produce COVID-19 supplies to help combat the virus. These companies have received nearly $2.3 million in funding from New York State to produce needed supplies to help continue our fight in the pandemic. These grant funds will help alleviate product shortages due to supply chain issues that could lead to unfair pricing practices and delays. These companies will also increase the State's manufacturing capacity while creating new jobs and market opportunities.

4. In the third round of the program, Nourish NY has so far spent $8 million to help New Yorkers in need. So far, over six million pounds of raw milk has been turned into dairy products and distributed by food banks, along with over 1.9 pounds of produce. Over five million households in need have received products sourced from New York farms.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A pair of peregrine falcons are calling the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge home. This species of bird is listed as an endangered species by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, so it delighted environmentalists to see the two falcons establishing a nest in the bridge's nest box. This box, installed hundreds of feet above the water, provides a vantage point for the birds to dive for prey and wait for their five fledglings to hatch. You can check up on the peregrine falcons and their eggs via the bridge's Falcon Camera."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"The dedication and determination of New Yorkers in fighting the COVID pandemic is stronger than ever and it shows in the numbers. Yesterday the positivity rate in New York State was 2.06 percent—the lowest one-day positivity since November 5. Hospitalizations dropped to their lowest level since November 29. Still, we have a lot of work ahead to get New Yorkers vaccinated and to achieve a sufficient level of immunity to defeat this virus once and for all. Help us spread the word and encourage your friends and neighbors to get vaccinated!

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 3,567. Of the 242,432 tests reported yesterday, 4,996, or 2.06 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 2.57 percent. There were 811 patients in ICU yesterday, down six from the previous day. Of them, 499 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 45 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 43.0 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 177,255 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 13,929,970 total doses with 29.7 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

3. Starting tomorrow morning, New Yorkers age 60 and up are eligible for walk-in vaccine appointments. Walk-in vaccine appointments will be accommodated for these individuals at 16 mass vaccination sites across the state. See the list here.

4. Reminder that public and private employees in NY are granted time off to receive the COVID-19 vaccines. Last month, I signed legislation that grants employees up to four hours of excused leave per vaccine appointment that will not be charged against any other leave the employee has earned or accrued.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A 17-year-old boy from Geneseo, NY, has an important message for all New Yorkers: Get vaccinated. After getting both doses of the vaccine at the Rochester Dome Arena vaccination site, Zachary Mogavero used his talent as an illustrator to express his gratitude for the staff at the site and to encourage all New Yorkers to get vaccinated. His design will be displayed as flyers and given out as stickers at the Rochester vaccination site."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"We know the vaccine works, but only if we all take it. Getting vaccinated isn't only about you. You are a member of a community and you can make somebody else sick if you opt not to be vaccinated, so I urge everyone who has not yet done so to make an appointment. And to make it even easier, starting this Friday, walk-in appointments will become available to New Yorkers age 60 and older at 16 mass vaccination sites. The only way to defeat COVID is to get the vaccine. It is safe—over 13 million doses have already been administered in the State of New York. And every New Yorker age 16 and up is eligible so roll up your sleeves New York, and let's get vaccinated. 

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. Starting Friday, April 23, walk-in appointments will be available at 16 mass vaccination sites. Walk-in appointments will only be available to New Yorkers age 60 and up. There may be a wait for those opting to walk-in at some sites depending on demand. All proof of identity and insurance information, if applicable, will be needed. 

2. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 3,757. Of the 202,400 tests reported yesterday, 4,326, or 2.14 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 2.69 percent. There were 817 patients in ICU yesterday, down six from the previous day. Of them, 505 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 53 New Yorkers to the virus.

3. As of 11am this morning, 42.6 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 169,746 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 13,852,715 total doses with 29.2 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

4. The South Beach Psychiatric Center on Staten Island discharged their final COVID-19 patient today. The new but unopened Office of Mental Health facility has served as an emergency hospital since last April, providing care for over 1,000 patients. The Center will be closing its overflow center today following the decline in COVID hospitalizations. I want to thank the doctors, nurses and facility staff who were on the front lines, putting themselves at risk, to care for their neighbors and community.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A cat café in Buffalo celebrated its 400th adoption this week. Opened in 2018, the Purrfect Café & Gallery in North Buffalo is helping rescue cats find their forever homes and this week, Buffy was their 400th rescue cat to be adopted. The café works with four rescues to help cats in need find loving homes.

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"New Yorkers should be encouraged by the incredible progress they have made to decrease the infection rate and to get vaccinated. More than half of New York's adults have received at least one dose. Thanks to your hard work, we are continuing to open up even more of our economy. On April 26, movie theater capacity will increase to 33 percent. Low-risk indoor and outdoor arts and entertainment—including museums, aquariums, zoos and botanical gardens—will increase to 50 percent capacity also beginning April 26. Still, this should not be taken as a reason to let our guard down. On the contrary, we should all remain vigilant and continue to practice the behaviors we know work to stop COVID in its tracks—wear a mask, wash hands, social distance but also get vaccinated as soon as you can.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations rose to 3,783. Of the 147,583 tests reported yesterday, 4,339, or 2.94 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 2.85 percent. There were 836 patients in ICU yesterday, down 13 from the previous day. Of them, 521 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 44 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 41.7 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 131,589 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 13,428,920 total doses with 28.4 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

3. Capacity at arenas and large events will increase on May 19. Spectator capacity will increase to 25 percent at large-scale arenas and event venues, including professional and collegiate sports, and major performances. Social distancing, masks, health screenings and all other health and safety protocols remain in effect.

4. An additional $50 million in funding will go to Nourish NY through the FY 2022 Enacted Budget. Since last year, the Nourish NY initiative has purchased 21 million pounds of surplus agricultural products from New York farmers and delivered to more than 1.3 million households in need across New York State.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": Governors Island has some new groundskeeping staff: but they're not people, they're sheep. A family of five sheep from Albany arrived on the small island off of lower Manhattan to help control an invasive plant species—by eating it. The use of sheep to manage the non-native plant is an environmentally sustainable solution that will help protect the island's natural landscape."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"We know how the virus spreads, so it is simply a question of behavior and precautions if we hope to stop the spread as we vaccinate New York. The more precautions each of us take, the fewer people get infected. We're at a point now where we've communicated all the information that we can communicate and everyone knows the facts. We've asked New Yorkers to continue to take the risk seriously, but it is now up to each of us. It's up to you as an individual, you as a family, you as a community. Our recovery is going to be a function of how many vaccinations we take, and I believe that there is a civic and community duty for each of us to take a vaccine. We'll only be safe when everyone is safe.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 3,884, the lowest since November 30. Of the 232,929 tests reported yesterday, 6,555, or 2.81 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.04 percent. There were 868 patients in ICU yesterday, down 18 from the previous day. Of them, 543 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 43 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 40.2 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 233,973 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 12,872,765 total doses with 27.0 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

3. Today I signed legislation that will ensure low-income families have access to high-speed internet. The legislation requires that internet service providers offer high-speed internet plans to low-income customers for $15 per month. The pandemic reshaped many norms with remote learning, remote working and telemedicine and we must shape New York to adapt to these new conditions and ensure high-speed internet is available and affordable to every New Yorker. 

4. Tickets for the 2021 Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach will go on sale Monday, April 19 at 9am. Event Parking Passes will be required for all three shows beginning with Friday's practice show on May 28 and culminating with the final show on Sunday, May 30. The $10 per vehicle Event Parking Passes can be obtained from the State Parks' website. Additionally, 1,800 passes will be distributed to Long Island's three health care networks to be provided to their frontline health care workers involved in the pandemic response. 

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A Roslyn, NY high school student is connecting companies to charities to help people in need. Throughout the pandemic, the demand for new clothes spiked as charities stopped accepting used items. The Mia Exchange, started by 17-year-old Mia Sara, donates new clothes from store warehouses to women's shelters, churches, the Salvation Army and other organizations that provide these new clothes to those in need. We applaud Mia for exemplifying the best of New York's values."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Thanks to the extraordinary efforts and commitment of our providers and volunteers, more than half of New Yorkers who are 18 and older have received at least one dose of a vaccine, and more than a third of adults are fully vaccinated. On top of that, COVID hospitalizations dropped to the lowest level since December 1. We need to keep pushing COVID back until the threat is gone and we can do that with a combination of the vaccine and the public health measures we know stop the spread. You take the vaccine not just for yourself—you take it to keep other people safe.

Chart of the Day: To date, New York has conducted over 48 million tests.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 3,963. Of the 249,103 tests reported yesterday, 6,884, or 2.76 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.05 percent. There were 886 patients in ICU yesterday, down one from the previous day. Of them, 559 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 46 New Yorkers to the virus.

3. "To-go" alcoholic beverages have been extended through May 6. Throughout the pandemic the State has permitted to-go alcoholic beverages with the purchase of food to help support bars and restaurants. Remember to drink responsibly.

4. Become a New York State Citizen Public Health Leader. To continue the fight against COVID and prepare for the next public health emergency, the State launched the free, online Citizen Public Health Training course for New Yorkers, in partnership with Cornell University and supported by the State University of New York. This program will prepare and equip New Yorkers to become Citizen Public Health Leaders and build an informed network across the state. Enroll for free today.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": Instead of finding shellfish for dinner, a British archaeologist stumbled upon something a bit more Jurassic. Marie Woods found the 175 million year-old fossilized footprint along the Yorkshire coast, which scientists believe belonged to a meat-eating dinosaur known as a Megalosaurus. Woods, worried that the footprint would be washed away by the sea, contacted specialists to document the discovery. The fossil is the largest footprint of this type of dinosaur ever found in Yorkshire."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"The effort to vaccinate New Yorkers continues in full scale. While Johnson & Johnson is paused, we are using the Pfizer vaccine in order to meet and maintain scheduled appointments. It is important to keep in mind as we wait for federal direction that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is being carefully scrutinized and reviewed by top experts on an independent federal panel. Close to 40 percent of New Yorkers have now received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is great progress—and a testament to the dedication of our providers and our partners across the state who have been instrumental in making sure the vaccine distribution is fair and equitable. We will continue vaccinating as many New Yorkers as possible as quickly as possible. Like it has been from day one with this virus, our progress is only as safe as our determination to keep building on it.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. Effective Monday, April 19, the curfew for bars and restaurants will be extended. The current curfew will be extended from 11pm to midnight. The curfew for catered events will also move from midnight to 1am.

2. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 4,091. Of the 208,163 tests reported yesterday, 6,192, or 2.97 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.12 percent. There were 887 patients in ICU yesterday, up 18 from the previous day. Of them, 563 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 43 New Yorkers to the virus.

3. As of 11am this morning, 39.1 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 186,876 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 12,440,535 total doses with 25.9 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

4. Spectators will be allowed at horse and auto races at 20 percent capacity beginning Thursday, April 22. Spectators will be subjected to the State's strict guidance, which is currently in effect for other professional sports competitions with fans. Attendees must show proof of a recent negative test or completed vaccination series prior to entry and are subjected to the State's health and safety protocols on face coverings, social distancing and health screening.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": Lincoln Center will soon have a brand-new front lawn—of sorts. "The GREEN," designed by noted set designer Mimi Lien, will transform Lincoln Center's concrete plaza into an expansive artificial lawn as part of an initiative to revive the arts. The installation, which runs from May 10 through September, will host pop-up performances, and will also offer books to borrow from the New York Public Library. Safety protocols in place to ensure all visitors can enjoy "The GREEN" safely."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"As you may have read, today the CDC and the FDA issued a statement recommending a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine out of an abundance of caution. New York State will follow the CDC and FDA recommendation and pause the use of the J&J vaccine statewide while the federal government evaluates next steps. As the CDC and FDA stated, these adverse events "appear to be extremely rare." Six people who have received the J&J vaccine in the U.S. developed blood clots, and the reason for the pause is to make sure all health care providers can identify the symptoms and treat patients with the correct medical protocol. But the context—six people reported with a problem out of 6.8 million who received the vaccine—is important to remember. While health care providers are notified and the federal government reviews the situation fully, New York State will continue to administer the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, which are completely unaffected by this pause and which make up the vast majority of our supply. The State Department of Health is in constant contact with the federal government and will provide updates.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations rose to 4,175. Of the 128,912 tests reported yesterday, 5,029, or 3.90 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.16 percent. There were 869 patients in ICU yesterday, up nine from the previous day. Of them, 564 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 58 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 38.6 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 219,846 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 12,253,659 total doses with 25.5 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

3. Today we launched a new targeted initiative to bring the vaccine to farmers and food producers. Our farm workers produce the food that ends up on our tables, and it's critical they have access to the COVID-19 vaccines. Because they often live in rural areas, getting the vaccine can be more challenging. Today we launched a new effort to bring pop-up vaccination sites directly to farms and food production facilities. Learn more.

4. The State-run vaccination site in Albany will move locations beginning the morning of Friday, April 16. The new, larger location will be at the Crossgates Mall, on the lower level of the former Lord & Taylor. It is fully indoors. If you have an existing vaccine appointment at the former SUNY Albany location, you will receive an email or text update with this information. All existing dates and times will stay the same. Additionally, the COVID-19 drive-thru testing facility at SUNY Albany is unaffected by this move and will remain in place.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A COVID survivor showed his thanks for the health care heroes who took care of him by running his first-ever 5k, NBC New York reported. Gabriel Cid, 45, was hospitalized for COVID a little over a year ago. He spent weeks on a ventilator, but thanks in no small part to the help of 150 nurses and doctors at Greenwich Hospital, he made it through. Many of those same hospital workers were there to congratulate him again at the finish line. Cid said his run was a way to express his gratitude to the "angels" who helped him throughout his ordeal, and he encouraged everyone to get vaccinated to help keep hospital workers safe."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"We need every New Yorker vaccinated, and that includes young people and students. Indeed, the 18- to 24-year-old population has a higher COVID positivity rate, and many of them are in colleges and universities. So it makes all the sense in the world to use these schools as an additional base for the vaccine. To that end, New York State will provide a dedicated initial allocation of 35,000 vaccine doses to address the college student population at SUNY schools and private colleges. These direct allocations will allow these institutions to vaccinate thousands of students before the school year ends, helping us stamp out COVID even faster. I encourage all colleges to participate in this, and I urge college students to get vaccinated at the earliest opportunity.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. The State Department of Health issued guidance to allow graduation and commencement ceremonies to take place with limited capacity. These ceremonies are important and we hope schools have graduation ceremonies—we just want them to be safe. Effective May 1, indoor and outdoor graduation and commencement ceremonies will be allowed with limited capacity, depending on the event size and the location (e.g., stadium, arena, arts and entertainment venue). Additional safety protocols must be in place. Read more.

2. COVID hospitalizations rose slightly to 4,118. Of the 131,436 tests reported yesterday, 4,926, or 3.75 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.20 percent. There were 860 patients in ICU yesterday, down 17 from the previous day. Of them, 571 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 58 New Yorkers to the virus.

3. As of 11am this morning, 37.9 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 174,822 total doses have been administered. To date, New York has administered 12,033,813 total doses with 24.9 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

4. In the third round of the program, Nourish NY has so far spent $6.5 million to help New Yorkers in need. Over five million pounds of raw milk has been turned into dairy products and distributed by food banks, along with over 1,500,000 pounds of produce. Over four million households in need have received products sourced from New York farms.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A retired teacher from Oklahoma is not letting the pandemic take away one of her favorite traditions: dressing for church. La Verne Ford Wimberly has been known in her community for the bright and beautiful clothes and hats she wears on Sunday to church. "Zoom church" did not stop her. When the pandemic began, and many traded business attire for sweatpants, Wimberly kept on dressing to the nines. After every virtual service, she posts photos of her outfits on Facebook, inspiring friends and strangers alike."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"To date, more than 1 in 5 New Yorkers are fully vaccinated. Our providers across the state are continuing to work around the clock to get more shots into arms, and we are doing everything in our power to make sure vaccine distribution remains fair and equitable. And while we continue to make progress towards defeating COVID once and for all, it's as critical as ever that New Yorkers remain vigilant and keep practicing the behaviors we know can stop COVID in its tracks—COVID fatigue is not an option.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 4,351. Of the 304,956 tests reported yesterday, 9,014 or 2.96 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.37 percent. There were 899 patients in ICU yesterday, down 48 from the previous day. Of them, 591 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 56 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 36.0 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 294,412 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 11,386,866 total doses with 23.1 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

3. The State will provide additional tax relief for families of MTA employees through the COVID family death benefit program. Members of the MTA workforce risked their own health throughout the pandemic to ensure our essential workers could perform their vital duties. As part of the FY 2022 Enacted Budget, direct payments made to families of MTA employees through the COVID family death benefit program will be exempt from State income taxes to honor those heroes. The MTA's unprecedented $500,000 COVID family death benefit program began in April 2020 and has thus far led to $62 million in approved direct payments to families of MTA employees who died from COVID-19.

4. Sixteen community-based pop-up vaccination sites will come online over the next week. These sites are expected to vaccinate more than 7,100 people throughout the week. Since January 15, more than 200 community-based pop-up sites have administered more than 77,000 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": Instead of asking for birthday presents this year, a young Long Islander asked for items she could donate to a local animal shelter. For her eighth birthday, Arianna La Rosa requested bags of pet food and toys, which she passed along to the animals currently at the Babylon Animal Shelter in Amityville, NY. Arianna's birthday "gifts" came from friends and family, with some donations coming from as far away as Florida."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"New Yorkers have done a tremendous job at continuing to beat back COVID, but we are not out of the woods yet. Even as we keep expanding eligibility, opening new vaccination sites and working to ensure the system is equitable, there's still more work to be done before we can fully get back to the things we love. With transmissible variants spreading and an infection rate that continues to hover above three percent, there is real cause for New Yorkers to stay vigilant. Washing hands, social distancing and masking up are small behaviors that make a big difference in our ability to combat this virus. There is a real need to continue these behaviors. We can get past this pandemic—we just have to get there together.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 4,422. Of the 263,737 tests reported yesterday, 8,379, or 3.18 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.40 percent. There were 947 patients in ICU yesterday, down three from the previous day. Of them, 600 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 47 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 35.1 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 223,154 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 11,092,454 total doses with 22.3 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

3. The annual Rochester Lilac Festival will be held in a different format this year. The annual festival will be held in a smaller format this year, split up between weekends in May to ensure full compliance with the State's outdoor event gathering guidance. Attendees who plan to enjoy the Flower City's annual festival will also be required to wear a mask.

4. See how Excelsior Pass can help you be a part of NY's safe reopening. To help revitalize New York's economy safely, the State launched Excelsior Pass—a free and voluntary platform for businesses & individuals that can be used to easily access secure proof of a recent negative COVID test or vaccination.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": Last September, we featured a Naples, NY teenager who built a boat on his own. Today we're glad to feature him again for another engineering feat. Now 15, Josh Gleason expanded his repertoire and is now designing and building underwater remotely operated vehicles. Gleason modeled his vehicles after those used by the federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and along with scouts from Naples Troop 40, he has deployed the vehicles to explore the waters of Honeoye Lake."

"Today I outlined highlights of the Fiscal Year 2022 Enacted Budget, and I want to share how elements of this year's budget specifically aim to manage COVID and bring COVID relief. New York is relentlessly working to vaccinate New Yorkers so that we can protect our state from this deadly virus, and the budget continues to fund those efforts—ensuring no one is left behind. The 2022 Budget includes $2.4 billion in rent relief to help New Yorkers who are at risk of being forced out of their home from hardship due to COVID. It also includes a historic investment in our schools, to address the impact of the pandemic on our students' academic, social and emotional needs. We also want to make sure our state's economy recovers from COVID. To that end, the State will invest $1 billion to help small businesses recover—including restaurants, arts and cultural institutions and other small businesses. With programs to make telehealth stronger, the creation of the New York Public Health Corps, and new measures to improve New Yorkers' mental health, this budget builds a bridge to a future where we can all be healthier and safer.

See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

3. The Department of Financial Services will extend the emergency regulation requiring all regulated health insurers to waive co-pays for the COVID-19 vaccine until April 30. The extension of this regulation and guidance will help to ensure there are no barriers to New Yorkers accessing the vaccine as the State continues to implement its vaccine administration plan and get every New Yorker vaccinated. The vaccine will come at no cost to any New Yorker.

4. The Coney Island Amusement Park will open for the first time since 2019 this Friday. This follows reopening guidance that allows outdoor amusement parks in New York to open at 33 percent capacity, which goes into effect Friday, April 9. 

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": A Schenectady restaurant celebrated its centennial this week.

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"New York took a big step forward today to bring us closer to beating this pandemic. Today, we expanded eligibility to all New Yorkers aged 16 and older. We expect the vaccine supply will continue to increase, and New York's vast distribution network is ready to administer doses as quickly as received. More than 1 million New Yorkers have already been fully vaccinated at State and FEMA mass vaccination sites. And with expanded eligibility, our message today is clear: Let's get everyone vaccinated. The vaccines are safe and effective—but they only work if they're taken. So book your appointment as soon as you can, roll up your sleeve, and let's get vaccinated, New York.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations rose to 4,533. Of the 132,864 tests reported yesterday, 5,748, or 4.33 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.57 percent. There were 937 patients in ICU yesterday, up 31 from the previous day. Of them, 591 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 47 New Yorkers to the virus.

See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

3. To honor all those who dedicated their lives throughout the COVID crisis, New York will construct an Essential Workers Monument. Today we announced the creation of the Essential Workers Advisory Committee to provide design input and recommendations for a monument in New York City honoring the service and sacrifice of New York's essential workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. These true heroes continue to aid and inspire us and they have our utmost respect. We will create a monument to honor them in perpetuity. 

4. Today, we announced the statewide "Vaccinate NY" ad campaign to encourage all New Yorkers to get vaccinated. Ads will run across television, radio, online and print statewide. This effort coincides with universal eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine taking effect.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": First 8-year-old Lilly Bumpus beat cancer, then she beat a national record. Lilly, who lives in San Bernardino, California, surpassed the Girl Scouts national record for most boxes of cookies sold in a single season. Bumpus sold 32,484 boxes of cookies, handily beating the previous record of 26,086 boxes. Her record also includes 5,000 donation boxes that will go to several charity organizations."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"The vaccine is the weapon that will defeat COVID. But only if we all take it, and starting tomorrow, April 6, all New Yorkers age 16 and older will be able to get vaccinated. As universal eligibility goes into effect, we will continue to work with local leaders to make sure all New Yorkers have access to the vaccine. But I also want to remind everyone that universal eligibility does not mean we can let our guard down. The truth is millions of our neighbors still need to get their shots and we are still in a footrace against the infection rate. It is imperative that we do not let down our guard and that we continue exercising safety protocols. Wear a mask, social distance, remain vigilant—but most importantly, get vaccinated. It's how we'll get back to the things we love and how we protect the ones we love.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations rose to 4,434. Of the 150,225 tests reported yesterday, 6,583, or 4.38 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.57 percent. There were 906 patients in ICU yesterday, up 24 from the previous day. Of them, 577 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 57 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 33.3 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 11,418 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 10,480,155 total doses with 20.7 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

3. At 8am tomorrow, April 6, all New Yorkers age 16 and up will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccines. New Yorkers can schedule an appointment through the Am I Eligible tool or by calling the NYS COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).

4. Today, we announced the start of the statewide "Roll Up Your Sleeve" ad campaign to encourage all New Yorkers to get vaccinated. The ads will be shown on television and online statewide beginning Wednesday, April 7. The ads were directed by Contagion screenplay writer Scott Burns and shot at New York City's Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Watch the ad here

5. Beginning today, the 11pm curfew for certain industries will be lifted. The curfew currently in place for casinos, movie theaters, bowling alleys, billiards halls, gyms and fitness centers will be lifted. The 11pm curfew for food and beverage establishments and the 12am curfew for catered events remain in effect. Both curfews will be evaluated later this month.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": For most of her life, Queens resident Monica Schuss didn't know she had a brother. After waiting 27 years on the State's adoption registry to learn about her family history, Schuss learned of her long-lost brother: Long Island resident John Tomanelli. Tomanelli, born seven years after his sister and adopted to a separate family, also joined the adoption registry, and recently they both received letters with exciting news of their family ties. Now the brother & sister are making up for lost time and realizing that even while separated, they have similar passions—like baking Irish soda bread."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"Thanks to the hard and nonstop work of our providers and vaccination center staff, we are nearing 10 million total doses administered since the start of this unprecedented statewide vaccination operation. Yesterday, a record high of 269,527 vaccines were administered in New York State. We must maintain this progress. We are continuing our outreach in socially vulnerable communities to break down any barriers to access. As we receive more supply from the federal government, we are ready to expand this operation for universal eligibility (anyone age 16+) beginning April 6. We're getting closer and closer to the finish line and to defeating the virus, we just need to keep our vaccination progress moving and we need to take all precautions to stop the spread.

I wish all New Yorkers who celebrate a happy and safe Easter this weekend.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 4,540. Of the 257,646 tests reported yesterday, 7,787, or 3.02 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.59 percent. There were 913 patients in ICU yesterday, down five from the previous day. Of them, 565 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 63 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 31.8 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 269,527 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 9,925,232 total doses with 19.2 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

3. Performing arts and entertainment venues can reopen at 33 percent capacity today. Venues can host up to 100 people indoors or up to 200 people outdoors. If all attendees present proof of completed vaccination or recent negative test result prior to entry, capacity can increase up to 150 people indoors or up to 500 people outdoors. Social distancing, face coverings, health screening and other health protocols will be required by all attendees, as well as strict adherence to all applicable Department of Health guidance—available here.

4. Eighteen community-based pop-up vaccination sites will come online over the next week. These sites at houses of worship, community centers and local businesses are expected to vaccinate more than 8,500 people throughout the week. Since January 15, more than 180 community-based pop-up sites administered have 69,000 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": When a 9-1-1 call came for a missing toddler, a New York State Trooper rushed to the rescue. Last Saturday evening, Trooper Brian Hotchkiss received a missing child report in South Bristol, NY, and with the sun setting soon, he knew he had to act fast. After two hours of searching Bristol Hills, Hotchkiss was able to find the missing 2-year-old girl who wandered away from her home. Thanks to Hotchkiss and the other Troopers' quick actions, the young girl was found and returned home safely."

The Latest From Governor Cuomo...

"As the warmer weather and increased economic activity bring more people out of their homes, making sure that every New Yorker gets vaccinated is more important than ever. The fight against COVID is far from over. I urge eligible New Yorkers to make an appointment to get vaccinated as soon as they can, and urge everyone to continue to take the safety precautions that will help us beat back the infection rate. It's going to take the work of all of us to get back to what we love. It's up to us, New York.

Chart of the Day: New York continues to lead the nation in testing with 45 million COVID tests conducted to date.

Here's what else you need to know tonight:

1. COVID hospitalizations dropped to 4,604. Of the 239,652 tests reported yesterday, 8,888, or 3.71 percent, were positive. The 7-day average positivity rate was 3.58 percent. There were 894 patients in ICU yesterday, down five from the previous day. Of them, 545 are intubated. Sadly, we lost 56 New Yorkers to the virus.

2. As of 11am this morning, 31.0 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 233,754 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 9,655,705 total doses with 18.5 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker.

3. To date, New York has conducted 45 million COVID tests. Testing is a key priority to getting New York back on track. Getting tested for COVID regularly is a great way to ensure your health and the health of those around you. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID or believe you may have been exposed to the virus, get tested. Find a testing site near you. You can also call 1-888-364-3065 to make a free appointment at a New York State-run testing location.

4. Starting today, domestic travelers are no longer required to quarantine after entering New York from another U.S. State or U.S. Territory. While no longer required, the NYS Department of Health still recommends quarantine after domestic travel as an added precaution. Mandatory quarantine remains in effect for international travelers. All travelers must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form. Individuals should continue strict adherence to all safety guidelines to stop the spread—wearing masks, socially distancing and avoiding gatherings.

Tonight's "Deep Breath Moment": Potsdam, New York—come for the vaccine, stay for the incredible scenery. The village of Potsdam has a small population of only 16,000 people, but the herculean efforts of the staff at the SUNY Potsdam vaccination site have led to more than 50,000 vaccine doses administered so far, with many people coming from hours away. Nestled right near the Canadian border, those who make the trip to Potsdam are treated to the stunning scenery of the North Country—and with the spring, the snow-tipped mountains will soon transform into lush green forest scapes."
