Cuomo: Upstate NY To See Partial Reopening On Friday

The New York Daily News reports:

Gov. Cuomo said some parts of upstate New York will be able to start reopening on Friday as the statewide coronavirus stay-at-home order expires. Even as he warned that little will change in NYC or the immediate suburbs, Cuomo suggested that some regions will likely meet a seven-point checklist of conditions needed to allow easing of restrictions.

“This is the next big step in this historic journey,” Cuomo said. He vowed that the reopening process would be cautious and closely monitored to prevent a resurgence of the deadly virus that has been seen in some other countries.

“We’re not the first to reopen,” he said. “We have to learn from the mistakes of others.” The death toll dipped on Mother’s Day to 161, the lowest figure since the virus started its deadly tear in March.
