Governor Hochul provides Wednesday coronavirus update

News

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

“The holiday season is a special time of year when we gather with our families and loved ones, but we’re also headed into a vulnerable time when more people are traveling, gathering indoors, and the chance of spreading COVID-19 is higher,” Governor Hochul said. “We know how to prevent the spread of this deadly virus – get vaccinated. If you’re vaccinated, then get the booster, and if you’ve done both then encourage your friends and loved ones to get vaccinated. Now is the time to do it. Let’s get through the holiday season without any spikes.”
