ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — On Friday, New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo sent out an update on the state’s progress during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“New Yorkers’ ability to stay vigilant and conscientious toward their fellow citizens is critical as we continue to battle COVID-19 throughout the state. That mindset—that I wear a mask not just to protect myself, but to protect you as well—is what will get us through to the other side,” Cuomo said. “New Yorkers need to keep wearing masks, socially distancing and washing their hands, and local governments need to keep enforcing state guidance. There is a long road ahead, but we will tackle it together by staying New York Tough.”

The Governor’s Office says that .95% of Thursday’s COVID-19 tests were positive. Cuomo also said there were seven deaths in the state on Thursday.
