Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday that coronavirus control measures will increase in Brooklyn’s “red zone” while parts of Queens will see their restrictions eased two weeks after the measures were first put in place.

“When we see progress, we adjust the target,” the governor said.

  • In Brooklyn, the red zone remains a red zone and will see increased virus control measures; the orange zone moves to a yellow zone; and the yellow zone remains a yellow zone.

Brooklyn’s orange zone areas will move to yellow zones, which allows schools to reopen with mandatory weekly testing, while its yellow zone areas will remain that way.

  • In Far Rockaway, Queens, the red zone moves to a yellow zone; the orange zone moves to a yellow zone; and the yellow zone remains a yellow zone.
  • In Kew Garden Hills/Forest Hills, Queens, the red zone moves to a yellow zone; the orange zone moves to a yellow zone; and the yellow zone remains a yellow zone.
  • Ozone Park will now become a yellow zone amid an uptick in cases, Cuomo said.
  • In Rockland County, the red zone remains a red zone and the yellow zone remains a yellow zone.
  • In Orange County, the red zone remains a red zone and the yellow zone remains a yellow zone.

Meanwhile, a reporter asked Governor Cuomo if he wants to apologize to Orthodox community facing strict enforcement of social distancing. Expect a big ‘but’ in the answer: ‘I’m sorry they are going through this, but I think I have communicated more with the people of this state more than any Governor in the history of the state of NY. I have done briefings that have been watched by 64 M people across the globe,’ Cuomo said.

  1. “I have done briefings that have been watched by 64 M people across the globe”… And 64M people across the globe have seen that this governor’s vile anti-Semitism is perfectly okay in New York…

  2. Watch out for all the thousands of false positives! Then they create a RED ZONE and torture the Yidden. Always double check when you get a positive result.

  3. Apparently Queens has too high of a non-Jewish population to keep the restrictions

    It goes without saying that Cuomo was lying when he said he will redo the red zone by a block by block basis.

    And of course non-Jews areas with an uptick in Corona don’t become red zones. Even Ozone Park only becomes yellow.

  4. Hi Mamelle Rochel,
    A friend of mine missed his covid test appointment, a day later he received a text message that he was tested positive,
    What a complete & utter joke

  5. Righhhhht chevra .. because Governor Cuomo has nothing better to do than to pick a fight with the Jewish community, In particular, the chassidim who vote as a unified block and could only hurt his future political aspirations .
    When you complain about anti-Semitism when there really ( in this case there is none ) you run the risk of being the lil boy who cried wolf..
    please grow up yingleman

  7. I’m so excited to see this headline but I hopehe makes more restrictions! This will bderech hateva save many of our brothers and sisters from dying from covid!!

  8. put out the data , there have been numerous frum test drives lets see the numbers of those by location .. shomer shabbos, aguda.. landaus.. so the community can see for themselves

  9. Stevenn:

    I have no doubt that you and your kind are happy to see the headlines and hope for more restrictions but not for reasons remotely related to the one you claim.

    If these restriction were really saving so many lives that how come places like Williamsburg or Lakewood which social media told us two weeks ago was rampant with Corona and people ignoring the rules doesn’t seem to be having any worse consequences from Corona than the neighborhoods subject to this targeted harassment?

  10. hymish: Cuomo was never an anti-Semite and he did not become one, suddenly. But he did enact laws and practices that unfairly targets Jews. This is a fact. He effected discriminatory laws and has given a free hand to the many anti-Semites in the pubic and private sphere.

  11. The virus is not deadly for most people. Please check these statistics:

    And read this:
    https://www.winknews.com/2020/09/23/cdc-shows-covid-19-has-high-survival-rate-doctor-still-wants-to-see-precautions-taken/
    CDC shows COVID-19 has high survival rate; doctor still wants to see precautions taken
    A CDC update Wednesday says individuals are more likely to survive the coronavirus after contracting it. The health agency says if you have the virus between the ages of 0 to 70, you have a 99% survival rate. And if you’re over 70, the survival rate is nearly 95%.
    Gov. Ron DeSantis also tweeted about the update, saying people in the age groups of 0 to 19 have a 99.997% chance of survival if they contract COVID-19, the age group of 20 to 49 a 99.98% chance, 50 to 69 years old 99.5% and 70 years old and above a 94.6% chance.

  12. There is no mention as to when the easing of restrictions take effect. Besides, the numbers were published as early as this past Sunday. Why did they have to wait until Wednesday to announce it?

  13. Rockland County
    There are large teams of inspectors going around to every store they judge non-essential and closing them up with a summons and fine.
    This is a group (approximately 10) of people comp[osed of all genders and ethnicities. There are even two who dug their yarmulkes out of a trash heap and are presenting themselves as orthodox. Not one is dressed in a professional manner and appear as if they were picked up on street corners. If this represents Cuomo’s inspection force his problems are much more serious than Covid.
    Based on this it should not surprise anyone that he is billions of dollars in the red and if Trump wins he is totally screwed.
    He can write books and stand on a soapbox and scream his own praises. He still remains complicit in the deaths of thousands of nursing home residents and a very obvious bigot.

  14. There are great meds and vitamins out there and they work for most people. Anyone who is in ka position were his /her health is compromised should stay home regardless. The ruthless murderers who are not letting doctors give meds for this should be severly prosecuted. For those of you shivvering in fear, there are places and docs where you can get meds and of course vitamins you can get all over.

  15. “Yellow” doesn’t help. The color isn’t really relevant.

    As long as the authorities decree that they require weekly testing or else they shut the schools, there has been no real change. This arbitrary and evil targeting of the Jews is just that: arbitrary and evil.

  16. For those who don’t want false positives (or any positives): Flush your nose out well with a saline solution or spray before the test, and it will come out negative.

  17. I have heard many times that people who weren’t even tested got a positive test result. I don’t believe in being tested at all, even if you’re not feeling well, then stay home and wait until you’re better. You don’t get tested every time you have the flu or a bad cold and at this time, I don’t think Covid is so dangerous.

  18. Cuomo only cares what his audience of 64M ppl across the globe have to say. And how his image gets gets across to them. But he can’t be bothered with watching his citizens suffer from his harassments right in front of his nose.
    Lets hope there are still righteous lawyers out there that will fight our case.

    Your Coronavirus Test Is Positive. Maybe It Shouldn’t Be.

    Excerpt: In three sets of testing data that include cycle thresholds, compiled by officials in Massachusetts, New York and Nevada, up to 90 percent of people testing positive carried barely any virus, a review by The Times found.
    On Thursday, the United States recorded 45,604 new coronavirus cases, according to a database maintained by The Times. If the rates of contagiousness in Massachusetts and New York were to apply nationwide, then perhaps only 4,500 of those people may actually need to isolate and submit to contact tracing.
    One solution would be to adjust the cycle threshold used now to decide that a patient is infected. Most tests set the limit at 40, a few at 37. This means that you are positive for the coronavirus if the test process required up to 40 cycles, or 37, to detect the virus.
    Tests with thresholds so high may detect not just live virus but also genetic fragments, leftovers from infection that pose no particular risk — akin to finding a hair in a room long after a person has left, Dr. Mina said.

  20. @hymmish

    Its sad, but anti semitism does exist. Cuomo is not shutting down the places that have many cases of coronavirus, because they arent all jewish. Its horrible. He sent out a list of places for inspectors to check, and there were no goyishe places on the whole list. Whether coronavirus is dangerous for most people or not is a discussion for a different time. Because this isnt about health and safety. Its about hate and power. You say “why do you think cuomo would waste his time”? He is making money off this!!! He is handing out so many fines from his ‘professional’ inspectors comittee, and is no longer giving funding to jewish institutions.

    Meanwhile, the covid tests are giving positives to people who didn’t even show up!!!!! That means that they don’t actually test you. they pretend to, and give everyone a result who was scheduled to show up that day. And they JUST HAPPEN TO BE POSITIVE. This is disgusting anti semitism right in front of our eyes, and you are defending a horrible rasha!!!!!

    May Hashem save us from the evil decrees of Cuomo!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Stevenn, I hope you are joking. I really do. First of all, there are so many cases of coronavirus in so many different places, but cuomo isnt shutting them down because they are not frum communities. Second, we both know the chareidim are not following the guidelines any better because of cuomos rules. the only difference is that they are paying fines for it. Is this any safer??? No, its just a disgusting case of anti semitism. Ive had enough of people defending cuomo.

    It might be okay to shut people down, but not to shut down a certain group of people. Shut down everyone who meets the requirements. The only reason the other communities dont meet the requirements is because they arent jewish. Those requirements are unfair

  22. hymish- Thinks that Chassidim vote as a block, or even vote at all. Ha.

    In any case, you are all missing the point. This newly anointed king, has asperations on a national level. The fact that he wrote a book clearly demonstrates this fact (even though the pandemic is still not over that he, nevertheless, penned a book testifies to how incredibly imperious he is). We are just small cogs in his political future, which rests on his ability to keep Covid cases down. The Brooklyn flareup could have derailed his plans, so he took an aggressive approach, which can also be perceived by the nation as a strong leader. The fact that for his future he is willing to delve into anti-Semitic troupes is indictive of the type of person he really is.

  23. All likely Trump voting neighborhoods will remain on lockdown, with floods of these anti-Semitic agents sent out to write as many citations as possible, legal or otherwise. The concept of enforcing masking and social distancing is abolished. It’s all about the Benjamins, and Cuomo is greedier that anyone else. I say, take him to court, and keep him so busy defending himself there that he won’t have time to make decrees against Jews.

  24. Myth: Covid 19 was eradicated by Master Cuomo early summer
    Myth: After Cuomo successfully brought the numbers down (on his own), the Jews brought Covid 19 back
    Myth: Not wearing masks reduced the virus infections in the summer, but not wearing masks caused a resurgence in the fall
    Fact: Covid 19 is a coronavirus originating in Wuhan, China, and first made an appearance in early 2020 in the US
    Fact: Like other viruses, Covid 19 seems to come and go with the seasons, higher in spring, lower in summer, and curving upwards again in the fall
    Fact: The WHO, the CDC, Fauci, Trump, Cuomo, Zucker, De Blasio, and everyone else, in the medical and political fields, have proven research about this Coronavirus the size of a pinhead.
    And the ones who claim they have proven research and statistics and know how to “manage”, “micromanage”, “manipulate”, and “control” this virus , know next to zero.

  25. ONLY HASHEM IS IN CHARGE AND WE NEED TO TURN TO HIM ALONE WITH OUR TEFILLOS.
    MAY ALL THE CHOLEI YISROEL HAVE A SPEEDY RECOVERY, AND MAY WE GREET MOSHIACH FAST IN OUR DAYS.

  26. This guy is a Ego Maniac that has NOTHING in mind but himself. He has been the worst Governor in the history of the state. And 64M ppl can attest to that. How dare he write a book DURING the Pandemic while people were dying in Hospitals & Nursing Homes and have the AUDACITY to call it LEADERSHIP??!! That I call FAILURE.

    Despite our “leaders” apologise to
    “His Royal Highness” who was Nebach insulted over the protests in BP. This Monster is responsible for 1000’s of Deaths in the State of NY. Killed 100’s of small businesses some forever. Had the highest death rate in the country. and now we’re supposed to trust him that he means our benefit to close schools, shuls and Businesses. History will judge this man the way he deserves to be judged.
