Cuomo orders NYC subway trains sanitized every night
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday ordered that all New York City subway cars be cleaned every night by Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) workers to ensure the safety of essential personnel during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Any essential worker who shows up and gets on a train should know that that train was disinfected the night before,” Cuomo told reporters at his daily coronavirus press briefing.
“Letting them endanger their own life and endanger the lives of others is not helping anyone,” Cuomo said.
We’re also beginning a new initiative, offering antibody tests to over 150,000 health care personnel and first responders. Antibody tests can tell someone if they’ve been exposed and recovered from COVID-19 — that’s something that will give people more confidence in their work.
