ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — As the coronavirus epidemic marches ruthlessly onward, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo issued several new executive orders meant to counteract the coronavirus on Saturday.
The first executive order moves the tax filing deadline to July 15. The Internal Revenue Service already rescheduled federal Tax Day by three months.
The second executive order moves the Democratic party’s primary election from April 28 to June 23rd, aligning it state congressional and legislative primaries.
The third executive order affects labor and delivery rooms. Rather than limit visitation, it requires hospitals to allow someone in labor to have a guest or partner present for support.
