Governor Cuomo Updates New Yorkers on State's Progress During COVID-19 Pandemic
"I once again want to thank all New Yorkers for their extraordinary efforts. The spirit of community, the spirit of unity and the efforts they're making have literally saved thousands of lives. So the health that you're protecting is not just yours and your family's, but that of all New Yorkers," Governor Cuomo said. "And it's not just a question of rhetoric—it's reality. Only one New Yorker passed away, and we won't stop until that number is zero. But when you look at what's going on around the country and what's going on around the world, it's a really extraordinary accomplishment that New Yorkers have achieved and I congratulate them."

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and Chancellor Jim Malatras today announced the launch of a SUNY system-wide COVID-19 case tracker dashboard. The centralized dashboard will provide real time, up-to-date information on COVID-19 cases, testing, and quarantine and isolation space availability across SUNY's 64 colleges and universities to more efficiently monitor, respond to, and contain the virus.
"New York State is taking immediate action to address the spread of COVID at SUNY colleges and universities and this new dashboard will help students, parents and faculty stay informed with the latest data," Governor Cuomo said. "I urge our SUNY community to stay vigilant as the virus continues to be a national and global crisis - wear masks, socially distance and be smart."
The COVID-19 Case Tracker dashboard will provide a case count for SUNY and for individual campuses. The data will be reported by campuses every 24 hours and added to the dashboard daily. The dashboard also includes vital information on the different types of tests administered, daily and weekly test data, overall positivity rates, available quarantine and isolation space, and hospitalizations. The tracker is developing and will be augmented as new categories of data become available.
