Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the rate of the COVID-19 virus continues to be low in New York, with 11 deaths on June 30, but he said he worries that compliance with safety rules is slipping.
Because of that, the governor said he’s postponing permission to allow indoor dining in New York City.
Cuomo said because the virus rate is now so low in the state, some have developed a false sense of security and are neglecting to wear their masks and to social distance.
“Citizen compliance is slipping,” Cuomo said. “We have to stay ahead of the virus.”
