Other states that have already reopened restaurants and bars are now seeing skyrocketing cases of COVID-19, he added.

"Citizen compliance is slipping", he said.

Cuomo said people must follow the rules and the city must do better on enforcement before indoor dining there can proceed. It's requiring travelers from 16 states, where the rate of infection is particularly high, to quarantine for 14 days when entering the Empire State.
