Five months since the first confirmed COVID-19 case in New York, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the State conducted 82,737 COVID-19 tests yesterday — the highest number of tests ever conducted in a single day in the state. 0.91 percent of those test results were positive. The governor also updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

“Today is five months since we had our first case, and yesterday we hit a record number of tests — 82,737 — the most tests ever conducted in a single day in this state, with 0.91 percent of results coming back positive,” Governor Cuomo said. “Our future is dependent on what we do, and social distancing, wearing masks and washing hands are useful and effective tools as we combat this virus. New Yorkers should continue practicing those basic behaviors and local governments should enforce state guidance. That’s what it means to be New York Tough.”

Governor Cuomo also announced the State Liquor Authority and State Police Task Force visited and observed 1,103 establishments across New York City and Long Island last night and found violations at 41 establishments, or 4 percent.
