    Gov. Cuomo vowed he was “not going to be distracted” in the fight against COVID-19, the outlet reports.

    “I’m signing today the legislature’s emergency powers bill, and I’m going to implement it today,” Cuomo said in a conference call with reporters.

    Cuomo said he would take that step with the “significant change” of allowing Empire State restaurants outside of New York City to increase indoor dining capacity to 75% from 50%.

    “The numbers are down. When the numbers are down, we adjust the economic reopening valve,” Cuomo said.
