Join me as I deliver a farewell address to New Yorkers. Watch:

Today's update on the numbers: Total COVID hospitalizations are at 1,367. Of the 145,311 tests reported yesterday, 4,150 were positive (2.86% of total). Sadly, there were 15 fatalities.

Beginning Labor Day, all @MTA  employees & NY employees of the Port Authority will be required to either be vaccinated or get tested weekly. Amid the growing threat of the #DeltaVariant , this precaution will help ensure the health & safety of these dedicated workforces.

I encourage private businesses like restaurants & stadiums to switch to vaccine-only admission. If you say to people, “If you don't have a vaccine, you can't get into these establishments”—then you'll see a real incentive to get vaccinated.

Addressing the people of New York. Watch LIVE:

Today I signed legislation requiring banks to take several actions that prevent overdraft fees. We continue to face the economic impacts of COVID and this law will help many NY residents who need it most.

We didn't get everything done that we wanted to and we didn't always get it quite right. But I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that every day, I worked my hardest. I gave it my all, and I tried my best, to deliver for you.


Certified young person Paul Rudd wants you to wear a mask. Listen up:

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.

If a hospital worker can wear a mask nonstop during a 10-hour shift. If women can wear masks during labor. You can wear a mask while running an errand.

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.

We are not willing to sacrifice 1-2% of New Yorkers. That’s not who we are. We will fight to save every life we can. I am not giving up.

Wake up America. COVID is getting worse not better. The White House is in denial.

When you wear a mask you are saying I respect my neighbors. When you wear a mask you are saying I respect nurses and doctors. When you wear a mask you are saying I respect other people.

We appreciate the commitment to social distancing and the flexibility! Wear a mask.

For over two weeks New York’s infection rate has been below 1% and declining. Spread the word that masks work.

Let's show our gratitude to our everyday heroes. They’re stepping up for all of us. So when you see them, thank them. I’ll start. Thank you to every: -Healthcare worker -Grocer -Pharmacist -Police officer -Firefighter -Public transit worker -Childcare worker And so many more.
