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

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.

2. As of 11am this morning, 39.6 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 198,257 total doses have been administered.

(These percentages include the entire population of New York, including children.) See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

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.

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.

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.

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.

2. As of 11am this morning, 33.8 percent of New Yorkers have completed at least one vaccine dose. Over the past 24 hours, 182,967 total doses have been administered. To date, New York administered 10,663,122 total doses with 21.2 percent of New Yorkers completing their vaccine series. See data by region and county on the State's Vaccine Tracker: ny.gov/vaccinetracker

3. 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.

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."
