New York Governor Andrew Cuomo holds a press conference Wednesday as the state works to tackle an increase in Covid-19 cases.

On Monday, Cuomo announced that the state would reopen a temporary field hospital on Staten Island to treat an influx of coronavirus patients. The 100-bed field hospital was one of many New York City hospitals to open in the spring as it battled a wave of Covid infections that overwhelmed the hospital system, killing around 800 people a day.

Earlier this month, the governor ordered restaurants and bars licensed by the State Liquor Authority to close at 10 p.m. He has also banned gatherings of more than 10 people in a private residence.
