Cuomo shoots down de Blasio warnings of possible NYC shelter-in-place order | Fox News

What a leadership team we have in New York. Tweedledum Dumb and Tweedledummer.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday dismissed the possibility of an imminent shelter-in-place order in New York City, hours after Mayor Bill de Blasio said it was a possibility and that a decision could be made within 48 hours. “Even though a decision has not yet been made by the city or by the state, I think New Yorkers should be prepared right now for the possibility of a shelter-in-place order,” de Blasio, a Democrat, said in a press conference Friday. “It has not happened yet, but it is definitely a possibility at this point. I believe that decision should be made in the next 48 hours, and it’s a very, a very difficult decision.” Earlier in the day on CNN, he said that “we’re absolutely considering that,” when asked about the possibility of a shelter-in-place. The warning from de Blasio comes a day after San Francisco placed a similar order into effect in order to combat the spread of the coronavirus. New York City on Monday limited restaurants to takeout and deliveries and limited gatherings to 50 people, after closing public schools on Sunday.
