Coronavirus: New York to rethink next phase of reopening as cases spike nationwide

New York officials will rethink the next phase of reopening in New York City, which would include indoor dining, as coronavirus cases surge across the country.

The announcement was made by Governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday where he addressed the climbing cases in states like Texas, Arizona, Florida, and California.

Texas and Los Angeles, California, have now rolled back some of their reopening phases as cases climb, and Mr Cuomo said he wanted to prevent New York from having to similarly move backwards in its reopening plan.

He said his office and other officials would decide by Wednesday on what Phase Three of reopening would now look like in New York City, which could impact if indoor dining would be allowed.
