The U.S. state of New York will extend its shutdown of non-essential businesses and stay-at-home orders until at least May 15, Governor Andrew Cuomo said Thursday.
“I don’t want to project beyond that period,” Cuomo told reporters during a daily news conference. “One month is a long time. People need certainty and clarity so they can plan. I need a coordinated action plan with the other states, so one month we’ll continue the close down policies.”
After that period is met, Cuomo said he and other regional governors will use available health data to determine if policies would continue
