Albany, N.Y. - During his Sunday morning press briefing on COVID-19, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced 109 more people died in New York State due to coronavirus on Saturday.

Cuomo held his Sunday press briefing at Jones Beach off of Long Island. He held it at a beach because many state beaches, including Jones Beach, were opened for the first time for this holiday weekend.

He urged people to enjoy the holiday weekend safely.

Gov. Cuomo said Long Island to now preparing to reopen, but didn't say how soon, and he urged people in the metropolitan area that as more people will soon be heading back to work, wearing a mask is mandatory when riding on public transportation.

Cuomo said what New Yorkers do today to make sure they and others stay safe will effect what happens in the state in the following days, "You tell me how people act today, I will tell you the infection rate three days from today."

Cuomo said the two go hand in hand, safety precautions and the infection rate.
