New York Gov. Cuomo to order all people to wear masks or face coverings in public

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to issue an executive order requiring all people to wear a mask or face covering while in public as the state works to combat the worst coronavirus outbreak in the U.S., he said Wednesday.

“If you are going to be in a situation, in public, where you come into contact with other people in a situation that is not socially distanced you must have a mask or a cloth covering nose and mouth,” Cuomo said during a press conference in Albany.

Cuomo said the state is moving to a “new normal” as he outlined a gradual reopening of businesses, saying the crisis won’t be over until a vaccine is made available.
