- New York City public advocate Jumaane Williams is leading a push to get more New Yorkers to wear masks. Today, Williams held an event at the Mill Brook Houses in the Bronx marking the launch of the Mask Up NYC initiative.

JUMAANE WILLIAMS: We can get out of this, but I mean, if you've seen lately, New York City and New Jersey, unfortunately, are starting to lead the way in terms of new COVID cases. But we can change that. We can change that by continuing to do what we have been doing, which is masking up.

- The goal of Mask Up NYC is to provide PPE to developments that would have been hardest hit by COVID-19.
