Hochul credits New Yorkers for reducing the impact of COVID-19

Lieutenant Governor Hochul's Twitter Account

Some regions of the state may see New York PAUSE restrictions lifted on May 15. The optimistic development, says Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, can be attributed to state residents who have generally stayed at home and followed other precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

By following guidelines for social distancing and wearing masks in public, among other protocols, Hochul believes New Yorkers have lowered the lethal impact of the coronavirus.

In a morning conversation with WBFO, Hochul encouraged residents to stay the course in the coming months so much of the state can reopen.

Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 a.m.
