COVID-19: NYC Quote of the Day 2020-05-05

Friday, May 1, 2020, NYS Gov. Cuomo - I Wear the Mask to Protect You

You try to find the silver lining. You try to stay positive. We stay socially distant, but we stay spiritually connected.

New Yorkers have been so supportive of each other. You can feel it. There's this spirit of community and mutuality. People are there to help one another. People understand that everybody's going through this. Everybody's in stress.

You look at the way people have complied with these rules, as annoying as they are, masks, six feet. That's out of respect, one for the other.

I love the metaphor of the mask. The mask does not protect me. I wear the mask to protect you.

What a beautiful sign of caring, of mutuality.
