I will be holding a briefing and making an announcement at 11:30am ET. Watch here:

Today's update on the numbers: 54,328 tests were performed yesterday. 518 tests came back positive (0.95% of total). Total hospitalizations fell to 817. Sadly, there were 9 COVID fatalities yesterday.

When NY’s phased reopening began, the goal was to avoid an uptick. What is happening now is even better: Our numbers continue to go down. This is great news. But it’s up to ALL New Yorkers to keep this progress going.

The @NYS Fair is officially cancelled. This one hurts — I love the State Fair. But the risk is too high to hold it this summer.

Violations of social distancing and mask-wearing risk lives. The videos over the weekend from Fire Island, the East Village and elsewhere say it all — there is COVID fatigue. But the virus doesn’t get tired or lazy and we can’t either.

No mammograms? We cured breast cancer. No HIV tests? We eradicated HIV. No pregnancy test? No baby. The White House logic that without testing there is no virus is denial on a national scale.

Not knowing, not testing is not an answer. It’s a rejection of science.

We are saddened by the death of Spc. Vincent Sebastian Ibarria, who was deployed to Afghanistan from Fort Drum. In recognition of his service, I am directing all flags at half-staff. We join his fellow soldiers, family, and friends in honoring his service to our nation.

The president is calling out the American military against American citizens. He used the military to push out a peaceful protest so he could have a photo op at a church. It's all just a reality TV show for this president. Shameful.

Wake up America. What’s happening across the country isn’t a second wave. It’s still the first wave.

Health care workers wear masks for 5+ hours non-stop. You can wear one for 45 minutes.

My mother is not expendable. Your mother is not expendable. We will not put a dollar figure on human life. We can have a public health strategy that is consistent with an economic one. No one should be talking about social darwinism for the sake of the stock market.

I received this letter from a farmer in northeast Kansas. His wife is ill and he is aging. He sent me 1 of 5 N95 masks he has from farming to pass on to a doctor or nurse in New York. This is humanity at its best. I share his letter as inspiration.

Yesterday the US hit a record high for new COVID cases. WEAR A MASK.

Today I am signing an Executive Order authorizing businesses to deny entry to those who do not wear masks or face-coverings. No mask - No entry.
