Governor Andrew Cuomo | New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Places State ‘On Pause’ Tells Non-Essential Workers to Stay Home | Featured

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Friday that he is placing the state “on pause,” signing an executive order mandating 100% of non-essential workers to stay home, leaving only for essential services.

“This is not life as usual,” Cuomo said. “Deal with it.”

Pause is an acronym for the state’s new policy on combating coronavirus: Policies that Assure Uniform Safety for Everyone.

Workplaces must allow employees to work from home when applicable. Those who don’t comply with the order will face civil fines or mandatory closure of businesses, the governor said Friday.

The order excludes trips to receive essential services, including groceries and pick up medication.

Among the essential services, Cuomo said restaurant workers who offer take-out and delivery services and mass transit workers are included.

“These provisions will be enforced,” Cuomo said. “Your actions can affect my health.”

The number of positive cases in New York has risen to 7,102, Cuomo said Friday. More than 32,000 people have been tested.

The significant spike in cases was due to the increased availability of tests, he said. “The testing so high that we’re testing per capita more than China or South Korea,” Cuomo said.”

About 10,000 people were tested Thursday evening alone.

The announcement comes a day after California was placed in lockdown by Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Cuomo distinguished his action from California’s, said it was not a shelter in place order.

Cuomo also instituted a 90-day moratorium on evictions in the state for both residential and commercial properties.

“I know that we’re going to put people out of work with what I did. I want to make sure I don’t put them out of their house,” he said Friday.

President Donald Trump said Friday that he applauds the actions of Cuomo and Newsom for the citizens of New York and California, respectively.

  • Thank you for every other informative website. Where else could I get that type of information written in such a perfect means?

    If you are telling the NY government nonessential employees to stay home then why are they employed by the state of New York then fire them off, cut the budget and cut your income, sales business and property taxes as well.

    Remember! Plumbers, Electricians, Mechanics, Electronuc
    Technicians, etc. ARE ESSENTIAL!!!

  • “The significant spike in cases was due to the increased availability of tests, he said.”, where the “he” is Cuomo. The solution is then very simple, STOP TESTING, and the number of cases will go down!, the problem will be minimized, and we can get back our lives, rather than living in the land of the free and the home of the brave, rather than in the land of the house arrested and the home of the fearful.

    • Are you freaking kidding me??? Do you realize how stupid this comment is? It is because of the testing that they were able to confirm these cases and treat them so that the disease is not spread further to other people. Thank God for the testing that revealed who has it in who does it.
