Statement by NYSAC Executive Director Stephen J. Acquario on the Culmination of the Governor’s Daily COVID-19 Pandemic Press Conferences

Counties commend Governor Andrew Cuomo for his early, strong, and steadfast leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 

The New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC), representing the counties of New York, commends Governor Andrew Cuomo for his early, strong, and steadfast leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.

County leaders, who led the local response to the global pandemic in the communities, appreciate the Governor's early intervention and daily press conferences that helped educate New Yorkers about the virus and its danger to public health and safety.Without that steadfast leadership, it would have been more difficult to contain the COVID-19 virus.

We also applaud the Governor's work with healthcare facilities to build out hospital capacity, ensuring those in need would have access to quality health care during this unprecedented crisis.

While the pandemic is not over, in New York State we implemented an action plan that can serve as a model for any state or nation to help combat a range of public health emergencies.
