The state has tracked several virus clusters in recent weeks and imposed new rules on these areas intended to further slow the spread. The clusters are primarily located in the Downstate areas of New York City of Rockland and Orange counties, Brooklyn and Queens.

The state also a phone application which provides updates on possible exhibitions.
