    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON'T KNOW THE PEOPLE JOINING ME TODAY, TO MY LEFT IS ROBERT MEHIKA, BUDGET DIRECTOR OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK TO MY IMMEDIATE RIGHT, MELISSA DE ROSA, SECRETARY TO THE GOVERNOR

    TO HER RIGHT, GARETH RHODES WHO HAS BEEN WORKING WITH US FROM DAY ONE THANK YOU AGAIN THANK YOU TO PRESIDENT CAREY FOR HAVING US HERE TODAY I KNOW IT IS A BUSY DAY AND A DISTRESSFUL DAY ON MANY LEVELS, BUT LET'S PROCEED TODAY IS DAY 90 OF THE CORONA PANDEMIC CRISIS

    FOLLOW THE FACTS, THEY WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY AJ PARKINSON THAT'S WHAT WE'VE BE DOING IN NEW YORK, FOLLOWING THE FACTS

    THE FACTS TODAY IN TERMS OF THE CORONAVIRUS ARE GOOD A NUMBER OF HOSPITALIZATIONS ARE DOWN THE NET CHANGE IN TOTAL HOSPITALIZATIONS IS DOWN INTUBATIONS ARE DOWN AND THE NEW CASES ARE DOWN TO 152, WHICH IS A DRAMATIC, DRAMATIC DROP FOR US AT ONE POINT, YOU KNOW, WE WILL NEVER GET TO ZERO

    WHAT IS GOT ONLY OF THE CURVE? I DON'T KNOW, BUT WE'RE CLOSE THE NUMBER OF DEATHS, THANK THE GOOD LORD, CONTINUES TO DECLINE IT IS AT ITS LOWEST LEVEL EVER OF 67 DEATHS WE HOPE AND WE PRAY THAT THAT CONTINUES TO BE THE CASE THE QUESTION IS ON REOPENING, AND AS EVERYONE KNOWS, WE'VE BEEN LOOKING AT THE NUMBERS, LOOKING AT METRICS IN TERMS OF DIFFERENT REGIONS ACROSS THE STATE

    THE PART OF THE STATE HIT THE HARDEST BY THIS VIRUS, AND WE'RE COMING BACK AS THE SMARTEST WE WERE FORCED TO LEARN MORE AND LEARN FASTER AND RESPOND QUICKER, BECAUSE WE WERE HIT BY THE INVISIBLE ENEMY, THE EUROPEAN VIRUS, THE VIRUS FROM EUROPE WHEN EVERYONE SAID WATCH CHINA, WELL, THEY WERE WRONG THE VIRUS CAME TO NEW YORK FROM EUROPE WE HAVE METRICS THAT ARE POSTED WE WANT ALL OF THE PEOPLE TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE DOING BECAUSE THEY'RE THE ONES WHO DECIDE WHAT HAPPENS, SO COMMUNICATING THIS INFORMATION HAS BEEN KEY FROM DAY ONE

    WE HAVE NOW DONE EVEN MORE TESTING WE TEST MORE THAN ANY STATE IN THE UNITED STATES PER CAPITA WE TEST MORE THAN ANY COUNTRY AROUND THE GLOBE PER CAPITA, AND THAT IS HELPFUL IN A NUMBER OF WAYS IT ALSO GIVES US MORE AND MORE INFORMATION TO MAKE DECISIONS SO WE CAN NOW LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF TESTS WE'RE DOING BY A SPECIFIC AREA IN THE STATES AND SEE ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS BY THE NUMBER OF TESTS IN THAT AREA

    YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE A TREND LINE FROM DAY-TO-DAY, RIGHT THIS IS ALL ABOUT OPENING SMART, WHICH MEANS WHAT? WHICH MEANS YOU ARE TRACKING THE VIRUS, AND WE CAN NOW TRACK IT ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS TO HELP US, INFORM US ABOUT OUR DECISIONS AND HOW WE SHOULD REACT WE HAVE A NEW DASHBOARD THAT ACTUALLY TRACKS THAT INFORMATION, AND YOU CAN SEE REMARKABLY CLEARLY WHAT IS HAPPENING IN TERMS OF THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS, THE SEVERITY OF THE NEW INFECTIONS, NEW INFECTIONS IN THE REGION SO EVERYONE WILL KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS HAPPENING AND WHY WE'RE DOING IT AND WHAT WE'RE — WHAT WE ARE PLANNING TO DO THE REASON WE ARE SO RIGOROUS ABOUT THIS IS BECAUSE MANY STATES AND COUNTRIES HAVE REOPENED AND THEY MADE MISTAKES

    YES, EVERYBODY WANTS TO OPEN TOMORROW I WANTED TO OPEN BEFORE WE EVER CLOSED BUT YOU HAVE TO BE SMART AND WE HAVE SEEN WHAT HAS HAPPENED PAINFULLY WHEN CITIES AND STATES AND COUNTRIES REOPENED TOO QUICKLY THEY HAD TO — THEY WOUND UP CLOSING AGAIN, WHICH IS THE WORST SITUATION SO BE SMART

    WE HAVE THE DATA WE HAVE MORE DATA THAN ALMOST ANY OTHER PLACE ON THE GLOBE BECAUSE OF OUR TESTING, AND WE HAVE HAD IT REVIEWED AT EVERY LEVEL ALL OF THE LOCAL OFFICIALS SIGN OFF, THE REGIONAL OFFICIALS SIGN OFF, THE BEST STATE EXPERTS, AND THEN WE GO TO GLOBAL EXPERTS WHO HAVE DONE THIS IN COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD AND, FRANKLY, HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE THAN WE DO BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN THROUGH THIS, THE CRISIS AND THE CLOSING AND THE OPENING AND THE CLOSING AGAIN WE REVIEW ALL OF THE DATA WITH THEM, AND I WANT TO THANK THEM ALL VERY MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO GO THROUGH THE DATA BUT THESE ARE LITERALLY THE BEST MINDS THAT YOU CAN FIND ON THE GLOBE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS, AND THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH ALL OF THE DATA

    SO I FEEL CONFIDENT THAT WE ARE — WE CAN RELY ON THIS DATA, AND THE FIVE REGIONS THAT HAVE BEEN IN PHASE ONE CAN NOW MOVE TO PHASE TWO BECAUSE THEIR DATA HAS BEEN REVIEWED AND THE EXPERTS SAY TO US IT IS SAFE TO MOVE FORWARD BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SMART AND YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE SPIKE SO THEY GO TO PHASE TWO PHASE TWO IS ALL OFFICE-BASED JOBS, REAL ESTATE SERVICES, RETAIL REOPENING, BARBER SHOPS, HAIR SALONS REOPENING THAT'S ALL PART OF PHASE TWO THE SPECIFIC GUIDANCE ON HOW TO REOPEN IN PHASE TWO, IT IS NOT JUST OPEN THE DOORS AND EVERYBODY HAS A PARTY, IT IS 50% OCCUPANCY IN OFFICE BUILDINGS, SIGNAGE ON MARKERS, ET CETERA, NO MEETINGS WITHOUT SOCIAL DISTANCING

    DON'T SHARE FOOD OR BEVERAGES I MEAN I SEE PEOPLE ALL THE TIME SHARING FOOD AND BEVERAGES YOU REALLY DON'T WANT TO DO THAT NOW BUT, AGAIN, THE SPECIFIC GUIDANCE FOR EVERY AREA RETAIL STORES, 50% OCCUPANCY, WEAR THE FACE COVERING

    A STORE OWNER CAN TELL YOU THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO COME IN IF YOU'RE NOT WEARING A FACE COVERING WHY? BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO INFECT THE STORE OWNER, YOU DON'T HAVE A RIGHT TO INFECT OTHER CUSTOMERS IN THE STORE, AND YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO WALK INTO A STORE AND ALL OF THE OTHER CUSTOMERS RUN OUT BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE A FACE MASK MALLS ARE CLOSED EXCEPT STORES THAT OPEN TO EXTERNAL ENTRANCES, CURB SIDE BUT, AGAIN, VERY DETAILED GUIDELINES BARBER SHOPS, HAIR SALONS ARE OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

    THE PROFESSIONALS IN THOSE OPERATIONS HAVE TO GET A TEST EVERY TWO WEEKS WE RECOMMEND THAT THE PROFESSIONALS GET A TEST BEFORE THEY REOPEN THAT'S NOT A MANDATE, THAT'S A RECOMMENDATION, AND WE RECOMMEND TO CUSTOMERS TO ASK THE BARBER OR PROFESSIONAL IN THE HAIR SALON IF THEY HAD A TEST BEFORE YOU USE THEIR SERVICES THAT'S A RECOMMENDATION BUT THEY HAVE TO GET A TEST EVERY TWO WEEKS, AND IF I WERE WALKING INTO A BARBER SHOP I WOULD SAY — I WOULD ASK THE BARBER, DID YOU GET A TEST BEFORE YOU REOPENED? WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU GOT A TEST? AND IF THEY GOT A TEST, THEY WILL HAVE A CERTIFICATION

    THEY WILL HAVE AN EVIDENCE OF THAT TEST, AND PEOPLE WILL WEAR FACE COVERAGE BUT THE BASIC RULE IS STILL ALL ABOUT HOW WE ACT, IT COMES DOWN TO THAT, HOW THE EMPLOYEE ACTS, HOW THE STORE OWNER ACTS, HOW THE INDIVIDUAL ACTS, HOW THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACTS REOPENING IN NEW YORK CITY IS MORE COMPLICATED AS WE KNOW, BUT WE ARE ON TRACK TO MEET ALL OF THE METRICS HOSPITAL CAPACITY OF 70%, WE WANT 30% HOSPITAL CAPACITY SO, GOD FOR BID SOMETHING GOES WRONG, WE HAVE THE BEDS WE WILL HAVE THE STOCKPILE OF PPE SO WE DON'T GO THROUGH WHAT WE WENT THROUGH LAST TIME, SEARCHING THE GLOBE FOR VENTILATORS, MASKS AND GOWNS

    WE LEARNED THAT THE HARD WAY, IT WOULD BE MADNESS TO GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN WE HAVE TO HAVE THE TESTING IN PLACE, WHICH WE DO THE CONTACT TRACING IS BEING BROUGHT UP TO SPEED WE BELIEVE ALL OF THESE THINGS CAN BE DONE NEXT WEEK THE MTA PREPARATIONS FOR REOPENING, BUT WE THINK ALL OF THIS CAN BE DONE BY NEXT WEEK AND WE WOULD BE ON TRACK TO OPEN THE WEEK AFTERWARDS

    ONE OF THE THINGS WE WANT TO DO AND WE HAVE BEEN DOING IS I WANT TO FOCUS ON THE HOT SPOTS AGAIN, FOLLOW THE FACTS WE HAVE THE DATA WE CAN TELL YOU BY ZIP CODE WHERE THE NEW CASES ARE COMING FROM THEY ARE IN NEW YORK CITY, THEIR OUTER BOROUGH, THEY'RE MORE BROOKLYN THAN THE BRONX, THEY'RE LOWER INCOME AREAS, THEY'RE MORE MINORITY AREAS, AND WE KNOW WHERE THEY ARE BY ZIP CODE

    SOME OF THE ZIP CODES YOU HAVE DOUBLE THE INFECTION RATE IN THOSE ZIP CODES THAT YOU HAVE CITY WIDE CITY WIDE THE INFECTION RATE IS ABOUT 19%, 20% IN SOME ZIP CODES IT IS OVER 40%, THE INFECTION RATE WE KNOW WHERE THESE ZIP CODES ARE NEXT WEEK LET'S DO A FULL-COURT PRESS ON THESE ZIP CODES, AND WE'VE BEEN TALKING TO OUR COLLEAGUES IN THE CITY, SPEAKING TO THE MAYOR ABOUT THIS

    NEXT WEEK HOSPITALS, PPE, GET THE CONTACT TRACING UP, MTA WILL FINISH THEIR FINAL PREPARATIONS, BUT THEN HOT SPOTS, HOT SPOTS, HOT SPOTS WE'RE IN NEW ROCHELLE TODAY WHERE WE HAD THE FIRST HOT SPOT IN THE NATION THERE WAS NO SUCH THING AS A HOT SPOT BEFORE NEW ROCHELLE HAD A HOT SPOT CONGRATULATIONS, NEW ROCHELLE, CREATED A NEW TERM NOW USED BY EVERY AMERICAN, HOT SPOT, IN THIS REGARD BUT WE KNOW WHERE THE HOT SPOTS ARE IN THE CITY

    WE WANT TO FOCUS ON THEM NEXT WEEK BE READY TO OPEN WE ARE ON TRACK TO OPEN ON JUNE 8TH, WHICH IS ONE WEEK FROM MONDAY, AND NEXT WEEK, AS I MENTIONED, WE'LL BE FOLLOWING UP ON THESE ISSUES PHASE ONE SHOULD BRING ABOUT 400,000 EMPLOYEES BACK TO WORK IN NEW YORK CITY REMEMBER THAT REOPENING DOES NOT MEAN WE'RE GOING BACK TO THE WAY THINGS WERE

    LIFE IS NOT ABOUT GOING BACK NOBODY GOES BACK, WE GO FORWARD IT IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT IT IS REOPENING TO A NEW NORMAL IT IS A SAFER NORMAL

    PEOPLE WILL BE WEARING MASKS PEOPLE WILL BE SOCIALLY DISTANCED IT DOESN'T MEAN THEY DON'T LIKE YOU IT IS NOT A PERSONAL REFLECTION IT IS JUST A NEW WAY OF INTERACTING, WHICH IS WHAT WE HAVE TO DO

    WEAR A MASK, GET TESTED AND SOCIALLY DISTANCE IT IS THAT SIMPLE BUT THAT HARD IT IS THAT SIMPLE BUT THAT HARD THOSE SIMPLE DEVICES, WEARING A MASK, HAND SANITIZER, THEY MAKE ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE THEY MAKE ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE

    YOU TALK TO ALL OF THE EXPERTS, WHAT ADVICE, WHAT SHOULD WE DO? WEAR A MASK HOW CAN IT BE THAT SIMPLE? BECAUSE SOMETIMES IT IS THAT SIMPLE THE DOING IS WHAT IS HARD, NOT THE ADVICE GETTING 19 MILLION PEOPLE TO DO IT, THAT IS WHAT IS HARD AND WHAT HAPPENS IS UP TO US, UP TO US

    PEOPLE SAY, GOVERNOR, TELL ME WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT WEEK, THE WEEK AFTER I CAN'T TELL YOU ONLY YOU KNOW IT IS THE PERSON IN THE MIRROR YOU TELL ME HOW THE PEOPLE OF NEW YORK CITY RESPOND, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENS IN NEW YORK CITY

    YOU TELL ME HOW THE PEOPLE IN WESTCHESTER RESPOND, I WILL TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENS IN WESTCHESTER THE NEW ROCHELLE HOT SPOT, THAT WAS ALL DONE BY NEW ROCHELLE IT WAS NO ACT OF GOD, IT WAS NO EXTERNAL FORCE IT HAPPENED BECAUSE OF WHAT PEOPLE IN NEW ROCHELLE DID WE KNOW HOW WE GOT HERE, WE KNOW HOW WE CAN GET FROM HERE

    IF WE ACT SMART, THESE STORES OPEN AND THEY'RE SMART, THE CUSTOMERS ARE SMART, PEOPLE ARE SMART, PEOPLE ON PUBLIC TRANSIT ARE SMART, THEN WE WON'T SEE THOSE NUMBERS GO UP AS WE HAVEN'T IN THE UPSTATE REGIONS THAT HAVE REOPENED AND LONG ISLAND THAT IS REOPENED, THE NUMBERS HAVE NOT GONE UP WHY? BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SMART WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO BE SMART, AND WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING THIS IN NEW YORK CITY WITH OUR PARTNERS I WANT TO THANK THE MAYOR VERY MUCH, AND HIS TEAM VERY MUCH

    EVERYBODY IN GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN WORKING OVERTIME, AND NONE OF US HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE BUT WE ARE FIGURING IT OUT I'M PROUD OF THE WAY NEW YORK IS FIGURING IT OUT WE WISH WE WERE NEVER HERE, BUT ONCE WE WERE HERE WE HAVE MADE THE BEST OF IT, AND WE SHOULD BE PROUD AND THE MAYOR IS LOOKING FIT AND HEALTHY AND RESTED, I DON'T KNOW WHY, BUT HE'S LOOKING EXTRAORDINARILY GOOD IT IS GOOD TO BE WITH HIM IN THIS NEW WAY OF EVERYONE IS VIRTUAL, EVERYONE IS ZOOM, BUT IT IS NOT THE VIRTUAL MAYOR, IT IS THE REAL MAYOR OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK, MAYOR BILL de BLASIO

    GOOD TO BE WITH YOU, MAYOR >> THANK YOU SO MUCH, GOVERNOR GOVERNOR, I'M WORRIED THAT THE CORONAVIRUS IS AFFECTING YOUR EYESIGHT BECAUSE I FEEL — I THINK THE LAST 90 DAYS FOR ALL OF US, A LOT OF LONG DAYS I KNOW YOU AND YOUR TEAM WORKED EXTRAORDINARILY HARD, AND I THINK WE ALL — WE ALL LOOK A LITTLE LESS THAN IDEAL LATELY THANK YOU

    I WANT TO SAY FIRST OF ALL THANK YOU, GOVERNOR, THANK YOU TO YOUR WHOLE TEAM FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY WORK THAT HAS HAPPENED OVER THESE LAST MONTHS AS YOU SAID, OUR TEAMS TALK ALL DAY LONG WITH A LOT OF COMMON PURPOSE, AND WE'VE DONE REALLY IMPORTANT WORK WITH THE SAME STRATEGIC VIEW, THE SAME APPROACH I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THAT WE ARE EXCITED TO GET TO THE POINT OF A RESTART FOR NEW YORK CITY AND WHEN I TALK TO THE PEOPLE OF THIS CITY THIS MORNING, I TOLD THEM THAT THE INDICATORS FOR MOVING ABSOLUTELY IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, BUT THAT THE KEY TO GETTING TO A POINT — A DEFINITION FOR THAT PHASE ONE CAME FROM THE COLLABORATION BETWEEN YOU AND ME AND THE STATE AND THE CITY TO ALL GET ON THE SAME PAGE AND MAKE SURE THAT WE WERE CONFIDENT THAT IT WAS THE RIGHT TIME TO DO IT

    YOU AND I HAVE TALKED, AND I THINK WE ARE ABSOLUTELY ON THE SAME PAGE THE FACT IS, GOVERNOR, YOU HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THE STATE AND HOW INCREDIBLY DIFFERENT IT IS THAN EVEN A MONTH OR TWO AGO I JUST WANT YOU TO HEAR THIS GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE CITY OUR OWN HEALTH DEPARTMENT INDICATORS, WE HAVE SET A THRESHOLD THAT WE WANT TO BE UNDER 200 NEW HOSPITAL ADMISSIONS EACH DAY TO KNOW WE'RE IN A SAFE ZONE TODAY, GOVERNOR, ONLY 61 NEW PATIENTS FOR COVID-19 OR SIMILAR DISEASE

    THAT'S BREATHTAKING HOW FAR WE'VE COME ON THAT WE ALSO HAVE SAID WE WANT TO BE BELOW 15% OF ALL NEW TESTS TESTING POSITIVE RESULT FOR THE PEOPLE TAKING THE TESTS AND, GOVERNOR, AS YOU KNOW WITH YOUR HELP WE HAVE ALL BEEN DOING MORE AND MORE TESTING EVERY DAY, LITERALLY EXPONENTIAL GROWTH TODAY'S NUMBER WILL BRING A SMILE TO YOUR CASE ONLY 5% OF THOSE TESTED TESTED POSITIVE

    SO THESE ARE GREAT INDICATORS THE THIRD ONE WE STILL HAVE A LITTLE WORK TO DO, BUT I'M VERY CONFIDENTIALITY AND I KNOW YOU ARE TOO, AND THAT'S THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN OUR PUBLIC HOSPITAL ICUs THIS MORNING, GOVERNOR, WE ANNOUNCED THAT THRESHOLD, THAT 375 THRESHOLD WE WERE CLOSE AT 391 PATIENTS BUT AS WE HAVE DISCUSSED, WE HAVE ABOUT 40 PATIENTS THAT ACTUALLY CAN BE CARED FOR OUTSIDE OF ICUs IN A DIFFERENT SETTING THAT GIVES THEM THE LONG-TERM CARE THEY NEED

    WE ARE GOING TO WORK WITH YOUR TEAM AND THE STATE TO FIGURE OUT THE RIGHT WAY TO DO THAT THOSE FOLKS WILL APPROPRIATELY COME OFF THE NUMBER THAT'S GOING TO PUT US UNDER THAT THRESHOLD NOW, WHEN YOU ADD ALL OF THAT TOGETHER, AS YOU AND I HAVE DISCUSSED, WE ARE ON NOW THE GATEWAY TO THE NEXT BIG STEP GOVERNOR, AS I AFFIRM TO YOU, WE ARE GOING TO SPEND THIS COMING WEEK GOING OUT TO THE BUSINESSES OF NEW YORK CITY THAT WOULD BE PART OF PHASE ONE

    WE ARE GOING TO BE PROVIDING THEM WITH FREE FACE COVERINGS WE WILL BE PROVIDED THEM WITH A HOTLINE ANY EMPLOYER CAN CALL TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO ADDRESS THOSE PRACTICAL QUESTIONS I HAVE GIVEN A LOT OF CREDIT TO YOU AND YOUR TEAM FOR THE GUIDANCE YOU HAVE PUT OUT AROUND PHASE ONE I VERY — — QUESTIONS IF WE SEE SOMETHING THAT'S NOT RIGHT, HELPING THEM CORRECT IT WE'RE GOING TO DO THE SAY FOR WORK — — HOTLINE FOR WORKERS TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE SAFE AND GETTING THE SUPPORT THEY NEED

    AS YOU AND I DISCUSSED, THIS NEXT WEEK WE WILL BE ABLE TO IMPLEMENT ALL OF THAT, A LOT OF HANDS-ON DIRECT WORK WITH THE SMALL BUSINESSES AND — — >> IT WILL WORK IN NEW YORK, AND NEW YORK — — TO CONTINUE TO WATCH — — I DIDN'T FOCUS ON HOT SPOT ZIP CODES THE PREPARATION, THE HOSPITAL NUMBERS, THERE ARE ABOUT 100 HOSPITALS IN NEW YORK CITY 11 ARE THE HOSPITALS THE MAYOR WAS REFERRING TO, THE NEW YORK CITY HOSPITALS, BUT THEN THERE ARE ABOUT 90 OTHER HOSPITALS THEY HAVE TO HAVE THE BEDS AVAILABLE THEY HAVE TO HAVE PPE AVAILABLE, AND WE WILL BE WORKING WITH THEM, BUT WE WILL GET THERE FOR JUNE 8TH

    JUNE 8TH WE HAVE TO BE SMART AGAIN, THIS IS NOT — I WILL MAKE ONE POINT ABOUT THE LARGER CONTEXT OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN MINNEAPOLIS TODAY, WHICH I'M SURE IS VERY DISTRESSING TO ALL OF US — AND I WANT TO BEGIN BY OFFERING OUR PERSONAL THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS TO THE FAMILY OF GEORGE FLOYD ON BEHALF OF ALL NEW YORKERS WHO HAVE SEEN THAT INCREDIBLE VIDEO WE CAN IMAGINE YOUR PAIN AND YOU ARE IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS I WOULD ALSO SUGGEST THAT WHEN WE THINK ABOUT THIS SITUATION AND WE START TO ANALYZE THIS SITUATION AND THE REACTION, LET'S NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE THAT WE CONTINUALLY MAKE, WHICH IS WE TEND TO SEE INCIDENTS

    THIS IS AN INCIDENT, AN ISOLATED INCIDENT PEOPLE FOCUS ON AN ISOLATED INCIDENT IT IS NOT AN ISOLATED INCIDENT IT IS A CONTINUUM OF CASES AND SITUATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN GOING ON FOR DECADES AND DECADES AND DECADES THESE ARE JUST CHAPTERS IN THE BOOK, AND THE TITLE OF THE BOOK IS "CONTINUING INJUSTICE AND INEQUALITY IN AMERICA

    " THESE ARE JUST CHAPTERS THE CHAPTERS START WITH MODERN DAY RODNEY KING IN LOS ANGELES, 1991 IN NEW YORK, 1997 AMADOU DIALLO, IN NEW YORK, 1999 SEAN BELL IN NEW YORK, 2006

    OSCAR GRANT, OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA, 2009 ERIC GARNER, NEW YORK CITY, 2014 MICHAEL BROWN, MISSOURI, 2014 LAQUAN McDONALD, CHICAGO, 2014 FREDDIE GRAY, BALTIMORE, 2015

    ANTOINE ROSE, PITTSBURGH, 2018 AHMED ARBERY IN GEORGIA, 2020 BREONNA TAYLOR IN KENTUCKY, 2020 GEORGE FLOYD IN MINNEAPOLIS, 2020 THAT, THAT IS WHY THE OUTRAGE

    THAT'S WHY THE FRUSTRATION AND THE ANGER IT IS NOT ABOUT ONE SITUATION IT IS ABOUT THE SAME SITUATION HAPPENING AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN, AND SEEING THE SAME THING AND NOT LEARNING THE LESSON AND THEN IT IS THAT HAPPENING IN A BROADER CONTEXT, IN A BROADER CIRCUMSTANCE, WHICH IS WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE CORONAVIRUS, WHICH AFFECTS AND KILLS MORE MINORITIES THAN ANYONE ELSE YOU LOOK AROUND THIS COUNTRY AND YOU LOOK AT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE DYING OF THE CORONAVIRUS, IT IS DISPROPORTIONATE AFRICAN-AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND IT IS JUST A CONTINUING INJUSTICE

    THAT IS THE FRUSTRATION AND THAT'S THE PROTESTS NOBODY IS SANCTIONING THE ARSON AND THE THUGGERY AND THE BURGLARIES, BUT THE PROTESTERS AND THE ANGER AND THE FEAR AND THE FRUSTRATION, YES YES AND THE DEMAND IS FOR JUSTICE AND WHEN THE PROSECUTOR CAME OUT AND SAID, WELL, THERE'S OTHER EVIDENCE BUT I CAN'T TELL YOU ANYTHING MORE THAN THAT, THAT ONLY INCITED THE FRUSTRATION

    INJUSTICE IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM HOW REPUGNANT TO THE CONCEPT OF AMERICA AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN I STAND FIGURATIVELY WITH THE — — I STAND AGAINST THE ARSON AND THE BURGLARY AND THE CRIMINALITY I STAND WITH THE PROTESTERS

    I THINK ALL WELL-MEANING AMERICANS STAND WITH THE PROTESTERS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU HAVE TO SEE THE SAME LESSON REPLAYED BEFORE YOU DO SOMETHING? THIS COUNTRY IS BETTER THAN THIS IT HAS BEEN BETTER THAN THIS, AND IT SHOULDN'T TAKE THIS LONG TO END BASIC DISCRIMINATION AND BASIC INJUSTICE ANY QUESTIONS? >> Reporter: GOVERNOR, ABOUT THE JUNE 8TH REOPENING, WHAT BECOMES A CHALLENGE AND BEGINS TO BECOME THE CHALLENGE IS COMMUTING

    SO EARLIER TODAY THE MAYOR USED THE WORD "IMPROVISE" WHEN ANSWERING WHETHER SOME NEW YORKER WOULD DECIDE WHETHER TO DRIVE IN OR TO TAKE THE SUBWAY IS THAT THE RIGHT WAY TO LOOK AT IT, YOU HAVE TO IMPROVISE AND MAKE THAT DECISION, OR SHOULD THERE BE GUIDANCE AND IDEAS FOR HOW WE DO THIS? >> YES, THERE IS — WELL, IMPROVISE I THINK THE MAYOR'S POINT WAS IT IS UP TO YOU, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO GO INTO NEW YORK CITY, YOU GO INTO NEW YORK CITY THE WAY YOU WANT TO GO INTO NEW YORK CITY IF YOU WANT TO DRIVE, YOU CAN DRIVE

    IF YOU WANT TO PAY THAT PARKING, YOU WANT TO DEAL WITH THAT TRAFFIC, THAT'S YOUR BUSINESS IF YOU WANT TO TAKE PUBLIC TRANSIT, YOU TAKE PUBLIC TRANSIT I UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE WOULD BE ANXIOUS ABOUT PUBLIC TRANSIT THAT'S WHY THE MTA IS DOING EXTRAORDINARY WORK THEY REALLY ARE

    I MEAN PEOPLE USED TO COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW THE MTA CLEANED THE TRAINS AND BUSES, RIGHT? THEY DIDN'T CLEAN THE TRAINS AND BUSES WELL ENOUGH WELL, THEY'RE NOW DISINFECTING THEM I MEAN THAT STANDARD WAS JUST UNIMAGINABLE, YOU CAN DISINFECT THE TRAIN THEY'RE DOING IT CLOSING THE SUBWAYS AT NIGHT HELPED, BUT THEY'RE DISINFECTING THE TRAINS

    THEY'RE USING UV LIGHTS, THEY'RE USING ALL SORTS OF CHEMICALS, THEY'RE EXPERIMENTING WITH FILMS THAT YOU CAN SPRAY ON THAT KILL A VIRUS FOR 30 DAYS THAT ARE LEADING TECHNOLOGY SO THE PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSTEM WILL BE OPERATIONAL IT IS OPERATIONAL AND WE WOULDN'T OPERATE IT UNLESS IT IS SAFE PEOPLE HAVE TO WEAR MASKS, BUT THE PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSTEM WILL BE SAFE AND INDIVIDUALS WILL MAKE THEIR OWN CHOICE AS THEY ALWAYS DO, RIGHT WE ALSO HAVE A CHOICE, TAKE THE TRAIN OR TAKE THE CAR

    BUT, AS I SAID, TAKING THE CAR HAS OBVIOUS ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES AND IS INCREDIBLY EXPENSIVE >> Reporter: HOW ABOUT STAGGERING THE WORK SHIFTS? HOW BIG A PUSH ON EMPLOYERS TO STAGGER WORK SHIFTS IN OFFICES WHEN WE GET THERE? >> YES, THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT FINDING THIS NEW NORMAL AND EVERYONE DOING THEIR PART ON AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL AND EMPLOYERS, PRIVATE COMPANIES DOING THEIR PART I HAVE BEEN, FRANKLY, AMAZED PLEASANTLY AT HOW CREATIVE AND HOW THOUGHTFUL THE EMPLOYERS HAVE BEEN IN STAGGERING THEIR WORKPLACE, STAGGERING HOURS, STAGGERING DAYS THEY'VE BEEN — THE EMPLOYERS HAVE BEEN RESPONSIVE, ALSO THE EMPLOYEES WON'T COME BACK OTHERWISE YOU KNOW, THE MARKET WORKS HERE

    PEOPLE WANT TO WORK, PEOPLE NEED JOBS, BUT THEY'RE NOT PUTTING THEIR HEALTH AT RISK SO I THINK THE EMPLOYEES ARE DEMANDING RESPONSE FROM EMPLOYERS, BUT I THINK EMPLOYERS HAVE BEEN VERY CREATIVE, AND THAT WILL CONTINUE >> Reporter: GOVERNOR, MANY — >> Reporter: — MTA LIMIT CAPACITY IN ANY WAY? >> YOU HAVE TO SEE IF THAT IS AN ISSUE SOCIAL DISTANCING AS WE MAINTAIN IT IN OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES, I DON'T KNOW THAT YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN STRICT SOCIAL DISTANCING ON A BUS OR A TRAIN I DON'T THINK THAT'S REALITY

    I'LL ASK ROB, HE CAN COMMENT BECAUSE HE'S ALSO AN MTA BOARD MEMBER, NOT JUST THE BUDGET DIRECTOR WHEN A TRAIN IS LATE, I BLAME ROB ALSO SO THEY CAN'T DO STRICT SOCIAL DISTANCING, BUT THEY CAN DO THE CLEANING PROTOCOL, THE DISINFECTING PROTOCOL YOU HAVE TO WEAR A MASK YOU HAVE TO WEAR A MASK, AND THAT'S GOING TO BE A PART OF THE PROTOCOL, AND THEY'RE GOING TO BE DOING THE BEST THEY CAN TO STAGGER VOLUME ON TRAINS, ET CETERA, AND THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE PERSONNEL WHO ARE WORKING TO LIMIT HOW MANY PEOPLE GET ON TO A TRAIN AND DO THE STAGING

    ROB, YOU WANT TO — ANYTHING ON THAT? >> IN THE GUIDELINES YOU WILL SEE AND AS THE GOVERNOR MENTIONED, THE MTA IS CLEANING ALL OF THE CARS, THEY'RE DOING THE DISINFECTING THEY'RE ALSO REQUIRING WEARING A MASK AND YOU WILL SEE THROUGHOUT THE GUIDELINES FOR ALL OF THE OPENINGS TO MITIGATE NOT BEING ABLE TO SOCIAL DISTANCE, IT IS WEAR A MASK WHEN YOU COME WITHIN SIX FEET THAT'S WHY YOU HAVE THE ORDER ON THE MTA WHICH IS ALWAYS WEAR A MASK BECAUSE IT IS MORE THAN LIKELY YOU WILL COME WITHIN SIX FEET ONCE YOU WEAR A MASK, YOU LIMIT ANY RISK THE CDC HAS ALSO SAID THAT SURFACE CONTACT WITH THE VIRUS IS NOT A SIGNIFICANT TRANSMISSION OF THE DISEASE

    SO THAT COMBINED WITH THE DISINFECTING, COMBINED WITH ADDING SERVICE RIGHT NOW WE'RE AT CLOSE TO 80% OF SERVICE WITH ONLY 10% OF THE RIDERSHIP SO AS YOU GO INTO PHASE ONE, YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT INCREASING BY ABOUT 400,000 PEOPLE, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE TRAVELING TO WORK TRAINS CAN EASILY MANAGE THAT THE GUIDELINES WILL ALSO TALK ABOUT RECOMMENDING STAGGERED HOURS, STAGGERED START AND STOP TIMES FOR EMPLOYERS, WHICH IS SOMETHING, FRANKLY, WE HAVE ENCOURAGED FROM BEFORE THE CORONAVIRUS, RIGHT, BECAUSE WE HAVE HIGH TRAFFIC DURING CERTAIN TIMES, PEAK TRAFFIC

    SO ALL OF THOSE THINGS TOGETHER WILL MITIGATE IT, BUT THE MTA, THE TRAINS AND THE BUSES WILL BE SAFER AND CLEANER THAN THEY WERE BEFORE SO WHEN THE GOVERNOR TALKS ABOUT GOING BACK BETTER THAN IT WAS BEFORE, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE AN MTA THAT WAS BETTER THAN IT WAS BEFORE, CLEANER THAN IT WAS BEFORE, AND SAFER THAN IT WAS BEFORE WE STARTED IN MARCH >> Reporter: — ON THE PLATFORM — TRAINS FORWARD, YOU GOT TO WAIT >> WHAT WE'RE ENCOURAGING IS THERE ARE OTHER CARS SO RIGHT NOW YOU'RE SAYING THERE WILL BE PEOPLE, AS THE GOVERNOR MENTIONED, ON THE PLATFORMS THERE ARE OTHER CARS OFTEN ON THE SAME TRAIN

    THE INITIAL MID CARS CAN BE FULL WHILE OTHER CARS ARE EMPTY, SO WE WILL ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO GO TO THE OTHER CARS THERE ARE NOT STRICT LIMITS ON THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT CAN GET IN, BUT LIKE WHEN YOU GET TO AN ELEVATOR, YOU SEE EIGHT PEOPLE GET IN THE ELEVATOR YOU MAY SAY, HOLD ON, I WILL WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE YOU CAN DO THE SAME THING WITH THE TRAIN, SAY, I MAY NOT GET INTO IT BUT WEARING A MASK NEXT TO OTHER PEOPLE WEARING MASK EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT SOCIALLY DISTANCE HAS BEEN SAFE THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ENCOURAGING IN ALL OF OUR GUIDELINES, AND THAT WILL BE CONSISTENT WITH THE MTA

    >> EXCUSE ME ONE SECOND AND THEN I WILL GET RIGHT TO YOU THE INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY ALSO PERTAINS TO RIDING THE PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSTEM, AND, YES, WE WILL NEED A COOPERATIVE PUBLIC WHERE IF YOU ARE ON A SUBWAY PLATFORM AND YOU SEE THE SUBWAY CAR IS CROWD ET, OKAY, WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE IF YOU SEE THE BUS COME AND THE BUS IS OVERCROWDED, OKAY, BE RESPONSIBLE, WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE SO PEOPLE WILL BE PART OF THAT ALSO ALSO, REMEMBER THIS, THIS IS ONLY PHASE ONE

    PART OF THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE SYSTEM IS YOU DON'T GO FROM ZERO TO 60 MILES PER HOUR YOU GO FROM ZERO TO 20 MILES PER HOUR THIS BRINGS 400,000 PEOPLE, PHASE ONE, INTO THE SYSTEM 400,000 IS NOT A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER IN NEW YORK CITY, RIGHT, IN A NORMAL OPERATING ENVIRONMENT SO YOU START TO OPEN GRADUALLY

    I USED TO TALK ABOUT TURN THE VALVE, JUST TURN THE VALVE A LITTLE BIT AND WATCH HOW THE SYSTEM OPERATES AND SEE HOW IT WORKS AND THEN IF YOU HAVE TO ADJUST, ADJUST NOBODY HAS BEEN HERE BEFORE I'VE NEVER SAID I KNOW HOW THIS IS GOING TO WORK WE KNOW THE ANSWERS

    NOBODY CAN GIVE YOU THE ANSWERS, THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW THE QUESTIONS NOBODY REOPENED NEW YORK CITY IN HISTORY NOBODY REOPENED NEW YORK CITY, NOBODY CLOSED DOWN NEW YORK CITY IN HISTORY IT WILL BE MY CLAIM TO FAME FIRST GOVERNOR TO CLOSE DOWN NEW YORK CITY

    SO REOPENING, PHASE ONE THAT'S ALL NOW, PHASE ONE HAS WORKED VERY WELL IN THE OTHER REGIONS, AND STARTING SLOWLY HAS WORKED VERY WELL BECAUSE YOU SEE LITTLE ADJUSTMENTS THAT YOU HAVE TO MAKE FRANKLY, LITTLE THINGS YOU WOULDN'T HAVE THOUGHT OF WHEN YOU START TO OPEN STORES, YOU START TO OPEN ATTRACTIONS AND THAT'S ONLY 400,000 PEOPLE, AND WE'LL LEARN AND ADJUST >> Reporter: — THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE BECAUSE YOU MENTIONED THE SUPER-SEATING EVENTS AND THE COMMUTE IS DIFFERENT THAN JUST NOT MAINTAINING SOCIAL DISTANCE, IT IS MORE THAN A COUPLE OF SECONDS

    IT COULD BE 45 MINUTES, IT COULD BE AN HOUR FOR SOME PEOPLE THAT THEY'RE IN CLOSE CONTACT >> LOOK, THEY'RE ALL A CHALLENGE TO ME THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE IF I WERE PERSONALLY, MY PRIORITIZATION FOR NEXT WEEK ARE THE HOT SPOTS THE ZIP CODES HAVE TWICE THE INFECTION RATE THEY'RE DRIVING THE NEW CASES SO THEY'RE A HEALTH CARE ISSUE AND IT IS THE LARGEST AREA OF DEATHS

    WHEN IT IS THE AREA OF HOSPITALIZATIONS, IT IS THE AREA OF DEATHS AND, LOOK, I UNDERSTAND THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES THIS STATE WILL HAVE AN HISTORIC ECONOMIC PROBLEM FROM THIS SITUATION, AND I GET THAT PAINFULLY BUT FOR ME FROM DAY ONE, IT HAS BEEN ABOUT THE NUMBER OF DEATHS THAT IS WHAT THIS — THIS HAS BEEN ABOUT DEATH FOR ME FROM DAY ONE ANY OF THOSE NUMBERS, I KNOW WE CAN DEAL WITH

    WE CAN FIX DEFICITS WE CAN FIX SHORTFALLS WE CAN FIGHT WITH WASHINGTON FOR FUNDING THE ONE NUMBER THAT WE CAN'T FIX IS THE NUMBER OF DEATHS THAT'S THE ONLY NUMBER THAT KEEPS ME UP AT NIGHT, AND THE HOT SPOTS, HIGHER INFECTION RATE, HIGHER HOSPITALIZATION RATE, HIGHER DEATH RATE

    SO THAT'S FIRST >> Reporter: GOVERNOR, HAVE ANY LOCAL OFFICIALS IN THE FIVE UPSTATE REGIONS WERE EXPECTING HISTORICALLY EARLIER TODAY, SOME HAVE FOUND THE PROCESS CONFUSING AND THEY NEED MORE COMMUNICATION WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT? >> THEY THOUGHT IT WAS EARLIER TODAY THAN 1:00? >> Reporter: THEY BELIEVED IT WOULD START, YOU KNOW, RIGHT IMMEDIATELY >> WELL, TODAY IS TODAY AND TODAY IS — YEAH, THEY WANTED IT THIS MORNING INSTEAD OF 1:00? YEAH WELL, I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT

    BUT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE DATA WAS REVIEWED BY ALL OF THE EXPERTS A COUNTY EXECUTIVE MAY BE VERY GOOD AT WHAT THEY DO, BUT THEY'RE NOT AN EXPERT IN VIRAL TRANSMISSION IN A GLOBAL PANDEMIC I MAY BE COMPETENT AT A GOVERNOR, BUT I AM NOT EXPERT IN GLOBAL TRANSMISSIONS IN A VIRAL — OF A VIRAL PANDEMIC SO I WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE HAD THE BEST MINDS LOOK AT ALL OF THE DATA BEFORE WE STEPPED FORWARD, BECAUSE IF IT IS STONE TO STONE ACROSS THE MORASS IF YOU TAKE A STEP BUT YOU'RE NOT ON A STONE, BUT YOU STEP ON THE LILY PAD GOING ACROSS THE MORASS, YOU WILL SINK AND THAT'S BAD

    SO I WANTED TO HAVE ALL OF THE BEST MINDS REVIEW THE DATA TO GIVE THEIR OPINION THEY'VE ALL SIGNED OFF ON IT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS MORNING AND 1:00, I NEVER TALKED TO ANYONE ABOUT TIMING, MORNING OR 1:00 >> Reporter: STAGE THREE FOR RESTAURANTS — IT APPEARS AS THOUGH NEW JERSEY IS DEDICATED TO ALLOWING PHASE TWO AND THE CITY COUNCIL INTRODUCED LEGISLATION TO ALLOW OUTDOOR DINING IS THAT INCLUDED? COULD IT BE DONE EARLIER THAN PHASE THREE BECAUSE IT IS OUTDOORS AND THEY'RE SIX FEET APART? >> THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION

    DID WE LOOK AT THAT? >> WE HAVE LOOKED AT THAT SOME HAVE OPENED UP OUTDOOR DINING IN ADVANCE OF INDOOR DINING WE HAVEN'T DECIDED YET BUT THERE'S A POSSIBILITY YOU COULD SEPARATE OUTDOOR DINING IT IS DIFFERENT BASED ON WHICH PARTS OF THE STATE AND WHAT ACCESS YOU HAVE TO SIDEWALKS AND SPACES FOR OUTDOOR DINING, BUT IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS UNDER REVIEW >> YES

    TALK ABOUT NEVER HAVING DONE THIS BEFORE YOU'RE RIGHT RESTAURANTS ARE NOW A NEW CATEGORY, OUTDOOR DINING, IS THAT THE SAME AS A RESTAURANT THEN WHAT THEY'LL SAY BACK IN THE OFFICE IS, WELL, OUTDOOR DINING ON MANHATTAN OR IN ALBANY? WHAT IS THE SIZE OF THE SIDEWALK? WHAT IS THE VOLUME ON THE SIDEWALK? ARE THEY SOCIALLY DISTANCING FROM THE TABLE ON THE SIDEWALK? BUT WE HAVE TO LOOK AT IT OKAY

    ONE MORE >> Reporter: THANK YOU YOU MENTIONED THE PROTEST AND THE OUTRAGE WITH THE PROTESTERS I DON'T KNOW IF YOU SAW SOME OF THE PROTESTS IN NEW YORK CITY YESTERDAY OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO PROTEST WHETHER THERE'S A PANDEMIC OR NOT

    ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY ABOUT THE SAFETY OF THAT SITUATION? >> I'M NOT COMMENTING ON THE SAFETY OR BEHAVIOR OF ANY PARTICULAR PROTEST YOU HAVE HAD A LOT OF VIOLENCE ON SOME OF THESE PROTESTS [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] >> YEAH, BUT EVEN — BUT ON ANY PARTICULAR PROTEST, OBVIOUSLY OBEY THE LAW I'M AGAINST ANY OF THE CRIMINALITY THAT HAS GONE ON, ARSON, THUGGERY, ET CETERA

    BUT MARTIN LUTHER KING, THE RIGHT TO SPEAK UP, THE PROTEST, THE FRUSTRATION, I STAND WITH THAT BECAUSE I GET IT I GET IT LOOK, MY — FOR MY LIFETIME AS — BASICALLY AS AN ADULT, I HAVE LIVED THIS, SEEN THIS FROM RODNEY KING FORWARD I MEAN I WAS THERE FOR ARMADOU DIALLO I WAS THERE FOR ABNER NOWENA AND THEN YOU HAVE ERIC GARNER AND NOW GEORGE FLOYD

    IT IS THE SAME CASE JUST CHANGE A COUPLE OF FACTS, IT IS THE SAME EXACT SITUATION WHEN DOES IT CHANGE? IT IS NOT LIKE A SITUATION THAT YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND HERE IS A MINORITY, HERE IS AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN, HERE THEY ARE BEING ABUSED, AND IT IS THE SAME SITUATION IT HAS BEEN 30 YEARS SINCE RODNEY KING

    AMADOU DIALLO IN NEW YORK, THE REPORTER WON PULITZER PRIZE FOR THE REPORTING WOW, GREAT JOB BY JOURNALISTS GREAT JOB SHOWING THE INJUSTICE, AND WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT WAS THE RESOLUTION? WHERE WAS THE PROGRESS? ERIC GARNER NO, I'M WITH THE PROTESTERS THANK YOU VERY MUCH

    >> Reporter: — THEY PLAN TO OPEN EARLY — SOCIAL DISTANCING — WHAT DO YOU — >> IT IS NOT UP TO YOU WHEN YOU OPEN YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE LAW OR YOU WILL BE CLOSED THANK YOU
