NY launches interactive map to find COVID testing sites near you”

I'm not in pain, I'm not in discomfort...

"You have to be smart, united, disciplined; you have to love yourself, your family, New Yorkers", he said, after a nurse in protective gown, mask and face shield had Cuomo close his eyes while she inserted a nasal swab to take a sample.

"That person got infected and went to the hospital or that person got infected and went home and infected the other people at home", Cuomo said during his daily news conference on the coronavirus outbreak.

Cuomo was asked about holding limited ceremonies upstate where 15 congregants could participate in a Shavout ceremony -with social distancing - during a press briefing in Albany Sunday. He has been tested several times previously, he said, but never before the public. New York Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker added that total capacity was around 80,000 to 90,000 per day with the inclusion of private lab tests. Before the state increased its testing capacity, asymptomatic individuals and those experiencing mild symptoms were encouraged to stay indoors rather than risk infecting others by entering a testing location.

Cuomo demonstrated the test as he urged New Yorkers to visit one of the state's 700 testing sites if they believe they are exhibiting symptoms.

Starting on Friday, the state allowed some businesses to reopen in regions that had met certain criteria, except for urban areas such as New York City. New Yorkers can search "COVID testing near me" on Google Maps to easily find the nearest testing sites. This story will be updated with any response.

The big picture: NY has so far conducted 1.3 million tests, with more than 350,000 confirmed cases of the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

A total of 1,889 additional COVID-19 cases have brought the statewide total to 350,121 The geographic breakdown is as follows, with total cases on the second line under the name of the country, followed by new cases on the third line.
