It has been four weeks since New York's daily coronavirus infection rate was above 1%. 

Numbers released Friday morning by Gov. Andrew Cuomo found the results of 93,395 tests confirmed 864 cases of coronavirus, an infection rate of 0.92%. 

Hospitalizations stand at 428 patients, and five people have died in the last 24 hours. 

New York has gradually reopened businesses during the summer, and casinos statewide and malls in New York City are reopening next week at limited capacity.

But there have also been trouble spots in recent days, with the infection rate in western New York communities above 1% this week; state officials have sent rapid COVID tests to the area. SUNY Oneonta has closed for the fall semester after hundreds of students have tested positive.

"Thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers across the state, New York has now gone four straight weeks with an infection rate below 1 percent," Cuomo said. "Next week, malls in New York City and casinos across the state will be able to open, marking another milestone in our battle against COVID-19. But we cannot become complacent - we must continue to protect our progress. We must all continue to wear masks, social distance, wash our hands and above all, stay New York tough."
