June 17, 2020- Albany, NY- Governor Andrew Cuomo holds daily Coronavirus press briefing (Darren McGee- Office of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo)

Governor Cuomo: “People have said we have to change our police departments and our public safety strategy. Now is the time to do it, and they happen to be right. We have April 1 as the deadline. 288 days, and counting, for local governments to enact real reform. And we mean real reform, we mean start with a blank sheet of paper, and come up with your vision, for your public safety department, in your community.

Cuomo: “Friday is Juneteenth. It commemorates the emancipation of slavery in the United States. It is a day that we should all reflect upon. It’s a day that’s especially relevant in this moment in history. I’m going to sign an executive order today, hence all my pens, recognizing Juneteenth as a holiday for state employees, and I’m going to propose legislation next year to make it an official state holiday.

Cuomo: “New York City is on track for Monday. New York City will have been phase one for 14 days. You look at all the numbers, all the numbers are good. You look at the number of tests, the positive tests. You look at it from the point of reopening. The numbers are good. Hospitalizations since reopening, the numbers are good. So New York is on track to enter phase two on Monday. The same metrics we use in New York City are the same metrics we’ve used in every region across the state. And they have all shown to be accurate and effective. We don’t change the rules for New York City. We don’t change the rules for Long Island. It’s one set of rules for everyone. And they have worked everywhere in the state.”

Earlier today, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the State reached the lowest percentage of positive COVID-19 tests yesterday since the pandemic began. Out of the 59,341 tests conducted in New York State yesterday, only 567, or less than one percent, were positive.
