HUDSON VALLEY, NY — New York State has seen new coronavirus outbreaks and increased spread in certain parts of the state, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday, but nothing like the spikes in 48 states and Washington, D.C.

Overall the metrics continue to show state health officials' micro-cluster approach has been effective in containing viral spread, he said in a news briefing.
