The governor announced Saturday that the New York Yankees and the New York Mets will hold spring training in New York this year; New York City will enter phase two of reopening on Monday; and the number of COVID-19 cases is continuing to trend downward — even as it is spiking elsewhere around the nation.
The governor announced Tuesday that the US Open will still be held in Queens, without fans in the stands, and that hospitals and group homes will now be allowed to accept visitors. According to the most recent survey, he said, more than 13 percent of New Yorkers have been shown to have COVID-19 antibodies.
On Sunday, the governor announced that low-risk sports in regions that have reached phase three of reopening can begin in early July; that the state is extending open enrollment in the state healthcare marketplace for an additional 30 days; and that he has signed legislation requiring the study of how COVID-19 has disproportionately affected the health of minority communities in New York state. Meanwhile, the number of hospitalizations due to coronavirus has reached the lowest level the state has in more than 85 days.
