Cuomo acknowledges ‘COVID fatigue’ as positive rate nears 6.5%

Governor Cuomo issued a press release this morning providing an overview of New York’s COVID-19 tracking data from Wednesday, January 13.

“New York is pushing forward to conduct more tests, add to hospital beds and make it easier to get the COVID-19 vaccine across the state, but we need New Yorkers to stay vigilant and take safe precautions as the virus is still spreading,” Governor Cuomo said. “Washing hands, wearing masks and social distancing are vital tools New Yorkers can use to stay safe, and local governments are bound to enforce state public health law. We’re moving through a difficult period in our history, and I know COVID fatigue has set in and New Yorkers crave normalcy, but we will get through this together and come out on the other side.”
