"I have high hopes for New York as we enter this new year with a new administration, but New Yorkers have to do their part," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Sunday. "The COVID war still needs to be fought, and while many feel COVID fatigue, that is a luxury we cannot afford. If we tire before the enemy, the enemy wins - it's that simple.
"I am confident that we can defeat this and rebuild stronger than ever before. Until that day comes, I encourage all New Yorkers to keep fighting the good fight together - wear a mask, social distance and avoid gatherings."
