New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said New York City playgrounds will soon close.
The decision came after he repeatedly warned young people to follow social distancing guidelines and not congregate in public areas.
"I've said this 100 different ways, but compliance is still not where it should be," Cuomo said. "So, we're going to take more dramatic actions. We are going to close down the New York City playgrounds. I've talked about this for weeks."
He added that he's working with Mayor Bill de Blasio on the closures. Open areas in parks will stay open, he said.
