New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said New York City is still on track to launch into phase three of its Covid-19 reopening Monday.
The governor reiterated that indoor dining will not be a part of this reopening.
“New York City is a crowded, dense urban area and — until recently — was the global epicenter of the Covid-19 crisis," Cuomo said in a news release today. "Out of an abundance of caution and after seeing other states' experiences with indoor dining, we will wait to reopen it as the city moves to phase three tomorrow.”
What the numbers say: New York added 533 cases yesterday, with .84% positivity rate. The state reported eight deaths.
