Cases of COVID are soaring across the Hudson Valley.
On Wednesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo updated New Yorkers on the state's progress combatting COVID-19. 2.57 percent of all tests in the previous 24 hours came back positive and the state's 7-day positivity rate is 2.70 percent.
We cannot go back to where we were with COVID when the pandemic first struck - with the vaccine readily available and proven effective, there is no reason we should have to," Cuomo said. "If you haven't already, get your vaccination. It's safe, free and easily accessible."
In the Mid-Hudson Region, the 7-day positivity rate increased to 2.60 percent, up from 2.40 percent the previous day. Just one week ago the Hudson Valley's 7-day positivity rate was 1.72 percent.
