ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) Governor Andrew Cuomo updated the state’s progress during the COVID-19 pandemic Tuesday.

Erie County’s yellow-zone seven-day rolling average sits at 7.33 % and the single-day positive number as of Monday is 8.05 %.

Twenty-nine New Yorkers died Monday due to COVID-19, eleven of them in Erie County.

The Statewide Positivity Rate is 3.18 Percent.

“The number of cases across the country and in New York are only continuing to climb. Despite our success in managing the spread, New York is not immune to this national surge of COVID,” Governor Cuomo said. “Our micro-cluster strategy and testing capacity will help us through this new season, but ensuring we don’t go back to where we were in the spring is going to depend on our behavior. “
