Cuomo Orders All New Yorkers To Wear Face Coverings In Public

Initially, "our projections told us we might have to use a vast number of hotels, dozens and dozens, to be able to accommodate all the medical needs", he said.

The governor explained that social distancing guidelines are working to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, and argued for them to continue.

Cuomo last month ordered so-called non-essential businesses to shut down as part of his stay-at-home order, which largely restricted people to their homes.

The governor said the requirement for New Yorkers to wear face coverings when people are out and close by other people starting Friday will also help fight the outbreak.

On Wednesday, at least 606 New Yorkers died as a result of the virus, and there are almost 12,000 confirmed COVID-19 deaths in the state. "Social distancing works and it's thanks to all of you".

Schools and nonessential businesses in NY will remain closed until at least May 15.

"That does not leave you a lot of wiggle room", he said. Throughout the coronavirus outbreak, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has insisted that the crisis requires him to be above politics and partisanship.

Wayne County, which encompasses Detroit, trails only New York City and Nassau County, N.Y., as the area with the most cases nationally.

Paycheck Protection Program runs dry; GOP blames Democrats
In a statement released on Wednesday, the SBA said it had processed more than 14 years worth of loans in less than 14 days. Kyrsten Sinema called on her colleagues Thursday to pass funding for the program by unanimous consent.

"Do you need a place to test it in large numbers?" he asked rhetorically of the feds. Hundreds more people have been leaving hospitals than entering and coming off ventilators than going on.

Cuomo said he plans to wear a mask when in public, although not when doing his daily press briefings. The state may impose a civil penalty for violations, he said. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness or death.

Also Wednesday, Cuomo said NY has developed its own antibody test that could help detect those immune to coronavirus as the state looks to gradually end its shutdown.

Cuomo reiterated his appeal for the federal government to help increase testing in NY in a call with the White House Thursday morning.

Officials are battling with how to get crippled economies up and running again without increasing the rate of infections as the world awaits a vaccine for the deadly virus.

By extending "PAUSE" in NY, the goal is to push infection rate even lower, ensuring the outbreak is under control and we can begin to consider reopening the economy.

Cuomo said conducting such testing will identify people who have already been infected with COVID-19 and who have since recovered. The state has seen a total of more than 27,000 cases.
