New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo noted during his daily coronavirus press conference today that tonight New York City will begin to shut down the entire subway system for several hours overnight to disinfect trains.
"Tonight we're going to shut down the subway for the first time in history," Cuomo said.
More context: Last week, Gov. Cuomo announced that the city would shut down its entire subway system from 1 to 5 a.m. each night to clean the trains. The plan goes into effect on May 6.
