Cuomo threatens to pull funding if COVID rules aren’t enforced

(Suffolk County, NY)- On Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo threatened to take away state funding in areas that aren’t enforcing COVID restrictions.  The Governors office said that local governments must “enforce public health law, under Section 16 in the designated cluster zones, or else they will lose state funding”.    Schools in cluster zones, could also lose funding if they don’t comply with the new COVID rules.  Cuomo also said in a press conference, that he expects that we will be dealing with COVID clusters for another year.
