With parts of New York poised to reopen, Cuomo urges caution: “Follow the facts”

New York is poised to reopen parts of the state on Friday, 75 days after the state reported its first coronavirus case. Governor Andrew Cuomo urged people to remain cautious as some businesses are allowed to open their doors for the first time in two months.

“Phased reopening does not mean the problem has gone away,” Cuomo said on Thursday, adding that decisions about reopening should be made “in a calibrated way.”

“Follow the data, follow the science, follow the facts, follow the metrics,” he said.
