He said more than 146,000 tests were performed Thursday. Just over 1.5% came back positive.


More than 1,000 people are hospitalized.

In the Capital Region, the positivity rate dropped from 1.3% on Wednesday to 1.1% on Thursday.

In the Mohawk Valley, the positivity rate dropped from 0.7% on Wednesday to 0.5% on Thursday.
