Infections in New York are back on the rise.
The latest numbers released from Gov. Kathy Hochul's office Sunday show the positivity rate at 2.65%. That's up from Friday. Across the state, 25 new deaths were reported.
In the Mid-Hudson region, the infection rate was up slightly to 1.85%. Two deaths were reported in our area - both in Dutchess County.
Meanwhile, the CDC says 80% of all Americans ages 18 and up have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 70% of adults are fully vaccinated.
In New York, that number is slightly higher. The CDC reports that more than 79% of New Yorkers 18 and over are fully vaccinated.
