New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo delivered an address today, marking the 111th day of the coronavirus pandemic in New York.
Earlier this week, Cuomo announced today would be his final daily coronavirus briefing.
Cuomo thanked New Yorkers for following restrictions and social distancing measures, which helped flatten the curve of the spread. He said there has been a "180 degree turn" and the state showed what's possible when they work together.
"We will be better, and we will be stronger for what we have gone through," he said. "It shows us how capable we are when we are at our best"
The state has been gradually reopening, and New York City is expected to begin phase two — which allows restaurants to open for outdoor service and lets other businesses reopen — on Monday.
