Hochul noted there are 20 cases of the omicron variant in New York. That number is expected to rise, she said.

"I think the omicron variant got everybody a little nervous," Hochul said, noting that in the past week, the state saw an almost 50% increase in average daily booster shots. She said around 500,000 booster shots were administered in the past week.
