"If we are going to maintain the progress we've seen, we need everyone to take personal responsibility - that's why I'm issuing an executive order that says any ny employee who voluntarily travels to a high-risk state will not be eligible for the COVID protections we created under paid sick leave".

However, cases are rising in 36 states, including Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas, CNN reported.

Bars in Fresno, Kern, Kings, Los Angeles and Tulare are required to close while those in Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara, Stanislaus and Ventura are only recommended to do so. The state has 700 screening web pages and, on Friday by itself, executed 70,000 Covid-19 checks. "Why don't we stop and acknowledge the undeniable reality of the situation?"

The US is the worst-hit country by the pandemic with more than 2.5 million cases and almost 126,000 fatalities.

Florida on Sunday added more than 8,530 cases after reporting a record of 9,585 cases the day before amid surging numbers, according to data from its department of health.

"A virus has a rate of increase and a number of deaths increases or decreases".

Cuomo's idea? No make a difference the political pressure, maintain the point out closed right up until the virus experienced demonstrably receded as measured by broadly readily available testing, reduced hospitalization premiums and lowered fatalities. Eight people died from the virus on Sunday.

Texas has been vaulted to fourth in the nation in infections with almost 150,000 after reporting six consecutive days of more than 5,000 new cases, according to data from Texas Health and Human Services. And in Texas, Republican Governor Greg Abbott was forced to pause the reopening plan for the second most populous state in the country amid increasing numbers.

A total of 869 people were hospitalized across the state, 39 less than were hospitalized on Saturday.

On Twitter, Jenkins urged the public to follow the recommendations and not wait for them to be instituted. "Stay at home except for essential business trips and wear a mask when outside the home and around other people".
