New York: Stores may deny access to customers who do not wear the mask
Stores, malls and other establishments in New York state will be able to deny access and service to customers who refuse to wear the mask. This was announced by state governor Andrew Cuomo. Flanked in his daily briefing by comedian Chris Rock and actress Rosie Perez, Cuomo made an appeal to New Yorkers to wear the mask and undergo the test.
"Everyone please take the test, wear the mask - said Perez - our governor is a rock star and makes us proud to be New Yorkers". In stark contrast to Donald Trump, who not only refuses to wear a mask but has made fun of Joe Biden for showing himself in public wearing it, Cuomo has insisted that wearing the mask is a "cool" thing and for this he asked to celebrities to help him get the message across to New Yorkers. "It is extraordinarily effective and we have made it mandatory in public places - he said - but now that we are talking about reopening shops and other offices we are giving the right to the owners to say that you cannot enter if you are not wearing a mask" .
