Cuomo issues executive order requiring masks in public spaces; outlines plan for phasing in economic activity (video)

Governor Andrew Cuomo will issue a new executive order ensuring that all people must wear a mask or face covering in public situations.

He called it a matter of public health, and noted that the masks should be worn in all situations where a person could not be able to maintain social distancing protocols.

The order will be released in three days, which is precisely when it will take place. That will give the public an opportunity to ‘correct’ behavior, as outlined by the Governor.

As for restarting the economy, Cuomo noted that it will be done in phases. He says it will gradually reopen based on how essential an industry is; and what the infection risk is for each industry.

“The most-essential and lowest risk industries will be opened first,” he said during his press conference.
