Cuomo, Murphy Outline States’ Reopening Plans, But Not Timetables

Noting that ”this is not a homogenous state,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday that some regions of the state could begin reopening when the current stay-at-home restrictions expire on May 15, while in several others the restrictions will be extended. He noted that while the number of COVID-19 cases in New York City is high, for upstate counties it’s “a different reality.”

Cuomo’s counterpart in New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy, outlined six key principles and benchmarks to guide the reopening process in that state. However, he didn’t specify a timetable, and noted that the stay-at-home order remains in effect.

“Our priority is to use science, data, and facts to put New Jersey on the road to recovery,” Murphy said Monday. ”In order to restore economic health, we must first promote public health.”

Cuomo on Sunday outlined a phased plan to re-open New York, starting with construction and manufacturing.
