A lot has changed since the start of the pandemic. A record number of people traveled this summer. Kids are getting ready to go back to school in a more normal setting.

Still, thousands of people are still testing positive for COVID-19 every day.

Gov. Hochul says 24 New Yorkers died Tuesday from the coronavirus.

The current positivity rate in the Capital Region is 10%.

With the school year about to begin, the state is re-launching the Vax to School program.

Meanwhile, Hudson Valley Community College is making COVID vaccines a recommendation, not a requirement, for returning students this fall.
