That’s because the variant now comprises more than half of the COVID cases in the Empire State. It’s recommended people take steps to protect themselves from getting sick such as washing their hands, keeping surfaces clean, and making sure they’re vaccinated against the illness.

Full vaccination among New Yorkers is up slightly from 11% in early December, but still far from the level health officials say could help tip the scales in curbing infections and severe illnesses.
