ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo Sunday updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“New York had the highest positivity rate in the nation at the peak of this crisis — now we have the third lowest in the nation. New Yorkers should be very proud of that fact, but we also need to remain vigilant,” Governor Cuomo said. “The fall is difficult for everyone – many countries are closing down again or implementing restrictions, and while in New York we’re managing it well, we need to stay smart: wear a mask, wash your hands, socially distance and be united, because we can only beat this virus together.”

The Governor said that the positive testing rate in all focus areas under the state’s Micro-Cluster strategy is 3.10%, and outside the focus zone areas is 1.36%. Within the focus areas, 13,283 test results were reported Saturday, yielding 412 positives. In the remainder of the state, not counting these focus areas, 135,652 test results were reported, yielding 1,843 positives. Full results for tests reported Saturday, the day prior, the current 7-day rolling average, and last two weeks is below:
