NY To Set Up 15 COVID Testing Sites For Protesters

The New York Daily News reports:

Gov. Cuomo says 15 coronavirus testing sites are being set up in NYC for people who have participated in the mass protests over the police killing of George Floyd as the city moves to start reopening businesses Monday.

The governor praised the protesters for showing idealism and putting their lives on the line to call for racial justice. But he warned that the hard-hit city must stay on high alert for a resurgence of the deadly COVID-19 virus.

“We are concerned that these protests may lead to an increase in the virus,” Cuomo said. “So if you were at a protest, act responsibly. Get a test.”
