Governor Cuomo announced that 27 additional establishments have been issued State Liquor Authority violations for a lack of compliance with New York State COVID-19 guidance on Sunday. SLA issued 105 violations on Friday and Saturday combined. Yesterday’s violations were issued in all five boroughs of New York City.

“A situation that we’re watching is lack of compliance, particularly among young people, bars and restaurants. That’s not unique to New York—it’s a national problem—and even the president of the United States said young people shouldn’t go into packed bars,” Governor Cuomo said. “I’ve said for weeks that local governments are not doing what they need to do, and they have to step up. The state will be doing everything it can with the most aggressive enforcement mechanisms available. That continued last night.”

  • Patient Hospitalization – 642 (+5)
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 82
  • Hospital Counties – 29
  • Number ICU – 149 (-6)
  • Number ICU with Intubation – 84 (-6)
  • Total Discharges – 72,766 (+50)
  • Deaths – 11
  • Total Deaths – 25,117

Of the 57,270 test results reported to New York State yesterday, 608, or 1.06 percent, were positive.

The Governor also confirmed 608 additional cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the statewide total to 412,344 confirmed cases in New York State.
