87,776 Record Number of COVID-19 Tests in New York State

New York State reached a milestone with a record number of 87,776 COVID-19 tests administered in a single day. The Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, made the announcement today.

“We’re continuing to move forward protecting New Yorkers, slowing the spread and saving lives as the COVID-19 pandemic rages throughout much of the country and threatens the reduction in the numbers we’ve achieved here at home,” Governor Cuomo said.

“New York is reaching new heights in its ability to track and trace the virus, and that’s evidenced by the record number of tests—nearly 88,000—that were reported yesterday. As we prepare for the fall, I urge everyone to wear masks, socially distance and wash their hands, and I urge local governments to enforce state guidance on reopening.”
