Cuomo Says He May Slow NYC Reopening in Phase III
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday he's considering tweaking the Phase III reopening process for NYC, especially as it relates to indoor dining; the city will transition to that next step in exactly one week, on July 6.
New Jersey had been scheduled to start indoor dining on Thursday, but Gov. Phil Murphy said Monday he had postponed that step indefinitely.
The developments come as much of the nation is shattering daily COVID case records on a regular basis and the pandemic accelerates globally; worldwide, the death toll topped 500k and cases hit 10m in last few days.
