Governor Andrew Cuomo said at his Thursday daily briefing that the Mohawk Valley region, and four others, can move into Phase 3 on the reopening effective Friday. This appears to be the green light that was delayed in the transition between Phase 1 and Phase 2. The Phase 3 reopening includes Restaurants and food services, along with hotels and accommodations.

The Governor left the question of reopening municipal pools and playgrounds to the discretion of local officials.

The briefing, held in the Red Room at the Capitol, was less than half an hour in length.
