Cuomo Promises Crackdown on Areas Seeing Spike in Cases


Governor Cuomo is telling local governments to enforce social distancing guidelines, or he will.

Twenty zip codes in the state, including 10 in the city, are seeing a spike in cases. That’s being blamed for driving the city and state’s positivity rate higher.

“The local governments failure to enforce the law has exacerbated this problem. They've made it worse, not better,” Governor Cuomo said.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said he’s sending additional resources to impacted areas of Brooklyn and Queens to improve the education and enforcement.
