COVID-19: NYC Quote of the Day 2020-06-13

Saturday, June 13, 2020 - This is a Mask, This is a Chin Guard

I say to the citizens of this state who are the ones who accomplished the impossible, they are the ones who reduced that transmission rate, you have to stay smart, keep doing what we're doing, don't let up, don't think, well, now we're reopening, everything is fine, the weather's better, I hear New York is doing well. It is, but only because of what you're doing. That's been the secret from day one. You stop doing what you're doing, you'll see those numbers turn. So we have to stay smart, stay disciplined. To the protesters, I say wear a mask. It is the law. I signed an executive order that says it is the law. If you cannot socially distance, you must wear a mask. I also say, especially to my young friends, this is nothing. This is like a form of a chin guard. It may be a fashion statement, it may be cool, but this accomplishes nothing. It's not a mask. Well, I'm just taking a break from my mask. No. It's nose and it's mouth. This is a mask, this is a chin guard. Nobody told you to wear a chin guard. Wear a mask. It is the state law. It's not an option.
