ABC50 NOW

NEW YORK (WWTI) — Governor Kathy Hochul updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combating COVID-19 on Friday.

“Getting the booster is a critical way to protect ourselves and our loved ones that goes hand in hand with washing our hands and wearing a mask,” Governor Hochul said. “80 percent of New York’s adults are vaccinated, but COVID-19 is surging in regions with lower vaccination rates. If you remain unvaccinated, get vaccinated. Get your children vaccinated. If you’ve had your vaccination, get your booster. Take every precaution necessary to keep your community safe as we head into the holiday season.”
