Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that 168,353 COVID-19 test results were reported to New York State yesterday—a new record high.

“COVID-19 has had untold impacts on New Yorkers’ physical and mental health, and it’s critical that everyone stays vigilant as we move into the winter and COVID fatigue sets in. New York continues to closely monitor the data and increase its testing capacity to new highs, one of which we’ve achieved today,” Governor Cuomo said. “It’s important to put our state in context—we’re pushing ahead in the midst of increasing cases in the United States and around the globe. New Yorkers should wear masks, socially distance and wash their hands, and local governments should continue to practice careful enforcement. This night has been long, but we will see the sun on the horizon again if we stay New York Tough.”
