Governor Hochul encourages New Yorkers to use the tools we have available to fight COVID-19,

"We have the tools to fight this winter surge, and how quickly we turn the corner will depend on our actions. Please get your second dose if you haven't already, and get the booster if you're eligible. Parents and guardians, please get your children vaccinated. Wear a mask to help stop the spread, and stay home if you aren't feeling well. Let's learn from the lessons of the past and finally put this winter surge behind us."
