ALBANY, N.Y. – Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he is extending state mandates and policies put in place to limit the spread of coronavirus through April 29.

  • When in public individuals must practice social distancing of at least six feet from others
  • Businesses and entities that provide other essential services must implement rules that help facilitate social distancing of at least six feet
  • Individuals should limit outdoor recreational activities to non-contact and avoid activities where they come in close contact with other people
  • Individuals should limit use of public transportation to when absolutely necessary and should limit potential exposure by spacing out at least six feet from other riders
  • Sick individuals should not leave their home unless to receive medical care and only after a telehealth visit to determine if leaving the home is in the best interest of their health
  • Young people should also practice social distancing and avoid contact with vulnerable populations
