New York Governor Andrew Cuomo speaks during a news conference at a COVID-19 coronavirus infection testing facility at Glen Island Park, Friday, March 13, 2020, in New Rochelle, N.Y. State officials have set up a “containment area” in the New York City suburb, where schools and houses of worship are closed within a 1-mile radius of a point near a synagogue where an infected person with coronavirus had attended events. State officials stress it is not a lockdown. The vast majority of people recover from the new coronavirus. According to the World Health Organization, most people recover in about two to six weeks, depending on the severity of the illness. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Governor Cuomo Thursday updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

There’s no secret to how a virus spreads – this is mathematics, this is science and this is a function of our behavior, which we see reflected in the daily numbers. New Yorkers worked hard to change our behavior and bring the numbers down to the levels we have been holding at through our phased reopening,” Governor Cuomo said. “We are now focused on protecting that hard-won progress. We are fighting against the national surge of cases with our quarantine efforts, but we need local governments to be more active in enforcing compliance.”

Wednesday, the State Liquor Authority and State Police Task Force reportedly visited 963 establishments in New York City and Long Island and found 26 establishments that were not in compliance with state requirements. A county breakdown of Wednesday’s violations is below:

  • Brooklyn – 8
  • Manhattan – 5
  • Queens – 6
