Nassau urges residents to remain vigilant as county continues reopening

Nassau County officials are urging residents to remain vigilant and to be smart as the county continues its reopening process and on the road to economic recovery.
Officials reported 46 new positive cases of COVID-19 in a 24-hour period and 1.3% of those getting tested, testing positive.
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran reminded residents that there is a quarantine order in place for people traveling from 16 states, and is urging residents to use common sense and not travel to those high-risk states.
In addition, Curran says the county needs to remain vigilant and the economic forecast is a reason to contain the virus and move forward with the county's reopening.
"We know our residents and businesses are smart. Masks, social distancing and washing hands is important," says Curran.
Officials say testing continues to be the key to a safe reopening and more than 315,000 people have been tested in the county.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Wednesday that testing is now open to all residents – both for viral and anti-body testing.
