Western New York to reopen Tuesday

Speaking to the Buffalo Niagara Partnership Monday morning, Western New York “control center” head, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul said, “We are in a very good place. What it requires is simply a four-hour training course. We went after all five counties, asked them to identify current government workers; it doesn’t have to be in the public health realm – social services, law enforcement, building inspectors – anybody who will do this. And we now are approaching those numbers, and I’m feeling really good about where we are today. Very good.”

Hochul offers additional details on phase one reopening

In a conference call Monday morning with the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul offered additional details on what phase one of “New York Forward” entails. She is head of the “control room” monitoring when Western New York can begin to exit Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s “New York State on PAUSE” shutdown.
