Governor Cuomo Update July 23 2020

This has been a stress test of government performance. Under the COVID stress test, we've seen what governments could perform and what they couldn't. It tested character of the people of the state.

Contact tracing does find super spreaders.

Government has to work.

After six months, we know what COVID is about. We must learn the lessons of those months.

Reopening was never the question. Yes, but follow the science and the metrics.

Careless, rushed, incompetent reopening vs. phased, smart reopening shows the results of ignoring and adhering to science.

Rushed reopenings have not helped the economy. The political debate should end. Facts should rule.

The NY quarantine is to stop a ricochet of the first wave: NY police are at airports, entrants must fill out forms, and travelers' ignorance is no excuse.

We're helping Atlanta and other states. Monitoring young people age 21-30, whose numbers are up.

To young people: this is not the time to "fight for your right to party;" do not ignore the facts; respect local law enforcement.

To taker Republicans: there will be no recovery without funding for state and local governments.

Re troops: Like Chicago, NY has had some crime uptick. However, there is no endangered federal property in NY; the Constitution states that there is no policing of states from the federal level; if federal agents were sent, NY would sue; I will hold the president to his word to talk if anything "changed."
