“The latest data from NYS contact tracing is starting to show that approximately 70 percent of new COVID-19 cases are occurring from households and small gatherings,” the department said. “Keep your loved ones and yourself safe by avoiding these gatherings. PLEASE stay home if you are sick- do not go to work or social outings if you are feeling ill. Do not go to or host social gatherings- big or small- during a pandemic. If you do not live with them, now is NOT the time to visit them,” they wrote in an update for Thursday.
