NY Lifts Covid Pandemic Mandates With 70% Vaccinated: Cuomo
Updated on

Governor Andrew Cuomo lifted New York state’s pandemic mandates effective immediately, saying that 70% of the adult population has now been given at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

New York, the early center of the U.S. outbreak, now has the lowest positive-test rate in the U.S., according to Cuomo. The governor, who wrote a book about his leadership during the pandemic, lifted all remaining mandates and restrictions on businesses and residents.
