“We understand that this is going to be a phased process and that many restrictions will remain in place,” he said.Bramson said while there was a general “feeling of excitement and optimism” it was an “issue if we go back to business as normal prematurely.”

“Then we’ll go backwards and that would be the wrong thing for any of us to do, so we’re going to be emphasizing that message using every opportunity,” he said.On March 10, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced he was implementing a"containment area" around a one-mile radius in New Rochelle, which at the time he called"the most significant cluster in the country."

New Rochelle became a hot spotafter a resident who lived there but worked in Manhattan became the second known case in the state. He was later linked to dozens of other confirmed cases, including members of his family and members of the New Rochelle synagogue he attended, which is also in the containment zone.

The state deployed the National Guard to the area to assist with deep-cleaning of schools and delivering food to residents who were under quarantine at home.The governor later expanded restrictions and social distancing measures as the virus spread throughout the state, closing non-essential businesses, limiting restaurants to delivery and take out, and restricting large gatherings.

Some regions in New York have slowly begun to reopen since mid-May after reaching seven metrics measuring downwards trends including data ranging from COVID-19 hospitalizations, deaths, hospital capacity, the number of contact tracers a region has available, among others.
