ALBANY, N.Y. (WCAX) - In New York, COVID cases continue to drop.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state’s single-day positivity rate dropped to a record low of 0.35%.

He also says the seven-day average statewide is 0.42% and has been declining for 69 consecutive days.

“We are going to have a cooperative relationship with all of the public transit across upstate transit agencies. If you get a vaccine, you get an unlimited seven-day transit pass. So you wouldn’t have to pay for any commuting cost on public transportation for the week,” said Cuomo, D-New York.

Cuomo is also continuing to incentivize 12-to-17-year-olds by raffling off 10 full four-year scholarships. They will cover school, room, board, and books.
