Cuomo shared: "Our message is simple - get vaccinated. It's the responsible thing to do, and we will continue to be aggressive in stressing this message all across the state," Governor Cuomo said. "Our providers are working nonstop to get more shots into arms quickly and equitably, but they need our cooperation. Getting everyone vaccinated is critical in reopening and rebuilding New York because our progress on vaccinations will have a direct effect on how fast we can continue to reopen sectors of our economy."

New York's restaurant curfew was recently extended from 11pm to midnight with COVID-19 restrictions remaining in place.

Cuomo revealed in another tweet yesterday that 44.1% of New Yorkers have received at least one vaccine dose and 31.1% have completed their vaccine series. 14,435,026 total doses have been administered to date.
