Gov. Andrew Cuomo is signing an executive order to expand the number of people who are eligible to conduct the coronavirus antibody test.
This test will determine if someone had and got over the virus, Cuomo said, and would determine if the person theoretically has immunity to the virus for an undetermined period of time.
“That is an important test, and we have to get that test to scale, and this executive order will help do that," Cuomo said.
The governor is also signing an executive order directing all employers to provide essential workers with a cloth or surgical face mask when they are interacting with the public. The masks should be provided cost free, Cuomo said.
