New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said “there is a very real possibility” that reopening would be rolled back if there are a high number of violations of the policy, tantamount to a high likelihood of the spread the virus.
He was asked specifically about Manhattan and Hamptons.
“If we have a high number of violations of the policy, which is tantamount to a high likelihood of the spread of the virus, and the local governments are not monitoring, policing, doing the compliance, yes there is a very real possibility that we would roll back the reopening in those areas. The only alternative would be to pause the entire reopening.”
He said the state is watching for a spike in numbers.
“Warning, enforce the law..” he said.
