Virus death toll drops to 5 in NY, once the U.S. epicenter

Cuomo recommends specific type of air filters for business mandatory for malls

Cuomo's theory? No matter the political pressure, keep the state closed until the virus has demonstrably regressed as measured by widely available evidence, reduced hospitalization rates, and decreased deaths.

Cuomo signed an executive order on Friday saying that ny employees who voluntarily travel to a state with a positive test rate higher than 10% will no longer be eligible for benefits from New York's COVID-19 paid sick leave law.

The order applies to anyone who is employed in New York State and voluntarily travels to states with infection rates of 10 per cent or more. 46,000 tests were conducted across the state on Sunday with 0.8 percent coming back positive. Along with the Mohawk Valley and North Country, Central New York, the Southern Tier, and the Finger Lakes all entered Phase Four as well.

On Saturday, Cuomo announced that the state Department of Health was investigating the case of a student who visited Florida and returned for a high school graduation ceremony in Westchester only to come down with COVID-19 after potentially exposing others at the ceremony. Employers with 11 to 99 employees and employers with 10 or fewer employees and a net income of more than $1 million had to provide at least five days of paid sick leave as well as job protection.

As Business Insider's Jake Lahut reported, governors from New York, New Jersey, and CT have touted their states' lower numbers of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations after seeing the most severe outbreaks in the US.

More than 90 percent of state and local government workers receive paid sick leave, even among the lowest wage-earners.

According to the Health Ministry data, 410 deaths were recorded in a day taking the COVID-19 death toll to 16,095. The rate of infections worldwide continues to rise, with one million new cases recorded in just six days.

New York, New Jersey and CT have already implemented a 14-day quarantine for anyone visiting from eight states with high rates of COVID-19.

However, cases are rising in 36 states, including Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas, CNN reported.

De Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo are on the same page in terms of concerns about indoor dining and whether it is too soon to allow New Yorkers to go back to dining inside.

"The most strident Trump supporters, the most strident ideologues - Texas, Florida - are doing a pirouette and there is nothing amusing about the pirouette", Cuomo said of his fellow governors.

The US is the worst-hit country by the pandemic with more than 2.5 million cases and almost 126,000 fatalities.
