Governor Kathy Hochul tested positive for Covid-19 this weekend. Hochul announced on twitter that she is not experiencing symptoms right now. She plans to work remotely this week. The governor also urged New Yorkers to get vaccinated and boosted, and test and stay home if you don’t feel well.

New York has been experiencing increased rates of Covid-19, but Onondaga County’s case load is falling. Upstate Medial University’s Dr. Chris Tanski believes Central New York has turned the corner on the surge.

"If you look at the COVID-19 hospitalizations, they were increasing slowly but steadily over the past few weeks, but now it seems like we’re on a bit of a plateau,"  Tanski said.

Tanski expects the number of Covid cases to continue to fall as temperatures rise.
