New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state is setting up a program with New York City Housing Authority to provide onsite health service and testing in the city's public housing.
"High concentration of people in one place, many people in the small lobby, many people in an elevator, many people in the hallways. Higher number of people in the apartment, just a higher occupancy, That's where the virus spreads," Cuomo said.
Cuomo also said the state is working to distribute 500,000 masks and 10,000 gallons of hans sanitizer to New York City's public housing communities. That's one mask for every public housing resident, according to Cuomo.
