Daily coronavirus cases hit an all-time high of 40,000 on Thursday, according to the data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

When the order was issued, that included Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Utah, Texas and Washington, but others could be included.

Cuomo in mid-March announced guaranteed job protection and extended paid-sick leave benefits for all employed New Yorkers who were forced to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic.

The state says this new executive order mirrors the law's existing provision that makes New Yorkers ineligible for paid sick leave if they travel to any country designated as having a level two or three travel health notice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

If the employee travels for work or at the employer's request, the provision does not apply.

Cuomo says that NY now assesses more people than any other state in the country and more people, per capita, than any other country in the world. He or she then tested positive for the coronavirus, according to officials.

More than 90 percent of state and local government workers receive paid sick leave, even among the lowest wage-earners.

Pastor Sedgwick Easley, of Union Baptist Church in Hempstead, says he still feels it's not safe to allow that many people inside the church so he is ignoring the judge's ruling.

As Business Insider's Jake Lahut reported, governors from New York, New Jersey, and CT have touted their states' lower numbers of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations after seeing the most severe outbreaks in the US.

The number of deaths Sunday was five, Cuomo said, the lowest daily death count since March 15. The rate of infections on Saturday were less than 1 per cent statewide. A final decision on indoor dining, mainly for New York City restaurants will be made on Wednesday, Cuomo says.

Cuomo said that all businesses with air condition systems should consider the HEPA filters, but that only malls would be required to install them. Total US cases now exceed 2.5 million.

Confirmed daily infections in the USA hit an all-time high of 40,000 on Friday, prompting officials in Texas and Florida to reverse course and close down bars in their states again.
