Briefing Notes:
  • Gov. Cuomo: Total hospitalizations are down again. 195 New Yorkers died from COVID-19 on Monday.
  • The state Department of Health is investigating approximately 100 cases of what may be a COVID-19-related illness in children with symptoms similar to Kawaskaki disease and toxic shock-like syndrome.
  • Reopening will be consistent with CDC guidelines. "Stay with the science and the data."
Calibrating for reopening the state depends on some monitoring devices:

  • Third: hospitalization rate vs. hospital capacity.
  • Fourth: Infection rate.
  • Gov. Cuomo says the state needs $61 billion in federal support or their will be cuts to schools, local governments and hospitals.
  • Gov. Cuomo says he and Gov. Larry Hogan, of Maryland, are issuing a joint statement asking for financial relief to states in next federal stimulus bill.
  • Gov. Cuomo outlines the 'Americans First Law;' which says if a corporation does not rehire the same number of employees it had pre-pandemic, it will not receive any federal money.
