Governor Cuomo Briefing November 24 2020

Day 269

Start 7:00

Life brings perspective. The question is are we being smart now.

Everyone's talking about Thanksgiving because we have to be on high alert.
Even if we just go with the current increase because of Fall and covid fatigue, we will see a post-Thanksgiving spike.

The 37-day holiday season's social activity, even at the low end -- 20% positivity rate -- NY State goes up at least 10%-15% increase in positivity -- means hospital front line stress and more death.

Both political teams agree for the first time (post-election!) that we all need increased vigilance. The holidays are the hardest to be separate.

But hard is about being smart.
Being smart is about being thankful for all those who died to get us to through covid and to Thanksgiving Day.
Their sacrifices, so that we didn't have to, were the bravest in the face of danger.

Which makes this holiday more profound, meaningful and powerful than in the past because it's about the extended family who did the right thing to save our lives this entire year.

America's Thanksgiving is about our brothers and sisters. Rising above all differences. All connected.

2. Agree. Sometimes I feel like he's my wise uncle.

Yes, he always puts the heroes front and center, which is what good leaders do. I've really gotten a better meaning about Thanksgiving this year because of him.

3. Yes. He's so sensible & a great communicator. Guess that's why he received an award recently.

 

His daughter is heart broken that she doesn't get to spend Thanksgiving with him & the family. He's a wonderful role model also. Biden & his administration will be excellent role models to help us heal from a very traumatic 4 years! ..... ..... .....

4. He received an award? Cool.

Two great things about him politically are that he's taking a turn heading the National Governors Association, and has got a massive bench of expertise and processes to give Democrats when they help red states get more organized in control of the virus and distributing vaccines. Because he's a tough judge of expertise and professional quality.
