New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that some parts of the state may begin to "unpause" after May 15.
The state's stay-at-home order — known as "New York State on pause" — is set to expire on May 15, and Cuomo said he will extend those orders "in many parts of the state."
"But in some parts of the state, some regions, you could make the case that we should unpause on May 15," he said.
Cuomo said it's important to "be smart" about reopening, and he said it's important officials have a plan in place before they begin to unpause.
"'Know what you are doing before you do it,' those are words to live by," he said.
