55. Yes. Cuomo and for NYC, de Blasio.

They're both smart and not inclined to panic. Or make decisions based upon idiocy.

Yesterday, Cuomo ordered a 1 mile containment area around part of New Rochelle in Westchester. This is the area associated with the attorney who became ill last week, if you recall the story. New Rochelle is a serious hotspot: the order prohibits large gatherings. This affects several public and private schools, houses of worship among others. He also called up the National Guard to work on disinfecting buildings/streets etc. They will also be delivering meals to kids from the closed schools who depend upon school-provided meals for much of their nutrition.

Also, de Blasio has made a point of telling people during his briefings that folks who are not insured will be tested for covid-19 without any financial repercussions to them. And that no one will be asking about anyone's immigration status when someone comes in for a test. Cuomo has ordered insurance companies licensed to operate in NYS to waive cost sharing requirements (i.e. coinsurance/deductibles) for all stages of the testing process for people who have insurance.

Happily, the governor of NJ, Phil Murphy, is also a Democrat. Were Christie still there, he'd probably be bricking up the Jersey-side exits of the Hudson River tunnels right about now.
