Cuomo Announces Renovation Projects To Restart NYS Economy

Epoch Times

"I am certain we can do it in a way that we are not going to see a major spike in the number of infections", he said.

Cuomo went on to note several New York-centric infrastructure projects, which he hopes to accelerate amid coronavirus.

With that improvement, Cuomo has turned his attention to re-opening NY, which is part of an economic crisis - triggered by lockdowns on businesses and travel - that has cost tens of millions of American jobs.

The Mid-Hudson region reopened on Tuesday and Long Island will follow on Wednesday.

This year, Memorial Day represents the beginning of the "new normal" as the region begins reopening its economy as it recovers from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

Cuomo said New York's ongoing infrastructure projects will "accelerate", including the long-delayed renovation of Penn Station, the redesign of LaGuardia Airport, and building renewable power transmission lines that link Canadian power to NY.

"Long Island will open tomorrow". It recorded no more than seven deaths in one day that month.

A total of 1,368 county employees will be trained in contract tracing, on top of other efforts, he said.

NASA eyes August for SpaceX ship liftoff with Japanese astronaut aboard
The manager of NASA's commercial crew program, Kathy Lueders , said everything was progressing well - at least on the ground. SpaceX, the Falcon 9 and the Dragon capsule have of course been to the ISS before, on several robotic ISS resupply missions.

"If we can do this smartly and safely and I am certain that we can do that", Bellone said.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday called on President Donald Trump to invest in infrastructure to jumpstart the USA economy as states further relaxed lockdowns and partygoers flouted precautions aimed at curtailing the novel coronavirus.

The number of daily new cases, 200, and new hospitalizations have decreased as well, Cuomo said. Over that same time period, there was a decline of five patients in ICU beds, bringing that number to 106.

Wearing a mask to prevent the spread of the coronavirus is "cool", noted tastemaker Gov. Andrew Cuomo decreed on Tuesday.

The issue impacted nine public safety answering points, mostly on the East End; residents got an early morning alert and were given numbers through which they could access their local police departments directly.

"Getting working people back to work, the builders, the construction workers, everyone back to work. It's going to be a slow process to get back", she said.

"Now we're looking at: what happened?"
