According to Governor Andrew Cuomo's Office, New York State is expanding its COVID-19 testing capacity to all state residents, not just those showing signs of the virus. The Governor is encouraging all New Yorkers to get tested since the state now has the resources to accommodate individuals who were not previously listed as priority subjects. NY state conducted 56,000 tests Tuesday, and Cuomo says that we continue to outpace all other states and many countries for testing per capita.
