New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state is looking at a plan to reopen after the coronavirus shutdown that is in coordination with other surrounding states.
"We've been talking today about the fact that New York believes we have reached a plateau," he said at a news conference. "We should start looking forward to reopening, quote unquote, but reopening with a plan and a smart plan."
He added: "If you do it wrong, it can backfire."
Cuomo said New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Rhode Island will appoint a public health official and an economic adviser to a working group that will design the reopening plan.
