Cuomo Extends NYC Lockdown Through June 13th

CBS New York reports:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has extended the stay-at-home order for New York State until June 13 unless regions meet certain conditions. That’s according to a new executive order issued late Thursday night.

The governor says five regions – Central New York, North Country, Finger Lakes, Southern Tier and Mohawk Valley – can begin Phase One of reopening Friday. Cuomo says they’ve met the seven metrics required to start reopening, meaning construction work can resume and retailers can reopen with curbside or in-store pick-up only.

The rest of the state can only begin to reopen after hitting a series of benchmarks. Earlier this week, the governor said New York City still needs to meet three more. Long Island and the Mid Hudson Valley are missing two.
