New York Governor Andrew Cuomo speaks during a daily briefing following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Manhattan in New York City, New York, July 13, 2020.Mike Segar | Reuters – Advertisement – – Advertisement – That daily average, however, is still far lower than earlier this year when New York was widely considered the nation’s Covid-19 epicenter. The state is also conducting far more testing than it did in the spring when it reported a high of nearly 10,000 new cases a day on average.Over the summer and fall months after New York was able to suppress the virus’ spread, Cuomo slowly began allowing more businesses to reopen at reduced capacity, like indoor dining at restaurants, gyms and museums.Now, cases are beginning to climb in neighboring states, a warning sign for New York. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced a set of similar new restrictions, including on indoor dining and a ban on interstate sporting events, that will begin on Thursday as the state tries to wrestle control over its growing outbreak.“They say in a race, ‘Run through the tape.’ Just finish the race. We’ve had a terrible eight months. We’re in this last small lap. Let’s just do what we have to do to get through it and then we’ll rebuild together,” Cuomo told reporters.This is a developing story. Please check back later for updates. New York will impose a handful of coronavirus restrictions on residents and businesses across the state as it tackles several “hotspot” outbreaks and tries to avoid a surge in cases, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday.Restaurants and bars licensed by the State Liquor Authority will be ordered to close at 10 p.m. beginning Friday, though they can operate for curbside pickup past that time, Cuomo said on a call with reporters. Gyms will also be forced to close at that time.“What is a state licensed facility? It’s a bar, it’s a restaurant, overwhelmingly the majority of it,” he said.- Advertisement – The state will also crack down on people congregating inside ahead of the holiday season, banning gatherings of more than 10 people in a private residence, he said.“What we’re seeing is what they predicted for months,” Cuomo said. “We’re seeing a national and global Covid surge, and New York is a ship on the Covid tide.”New York health officials are responding to a number of hotspots in zip codes that are reporting a higher positivity rate, or the percentage of positive tests, than other parts of the state. New York is reporting a weekly average of roughly 2,641 cases a day, a more than 22% increase compared with a week ago, according to a CNBC analysis of data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.- Advertisement –

Following the picture incident, Gundy appeared in a video with running back Chuba Hubbard in which he walked back his support of OAN and pledged changes in his program. OAN isn’t letting him distance himself without a fight, though, keeping a story the coach would like to put past him.On Saturday, OAN correspondent Chanel Rion wore an Oklahoma State shirt to a Tulsa, Okla., rally for president Donald Trump and called out Gundy and Hubbard on Twitter, asking to interview them about “why exactly Hubbard and the rest of the team believes that OAN is ‘disgusting.'” Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy is finding it difficult to backtrack from his controversial support of far-right media organization One America News Network (OAN) or overcome accusations of past racially coded comments aimed at former players.A picture of Gundy wearing an OAN shirt emerged last week and prompted many members his team to speak out against him on social media. OAN is anti-Black Lives Matter and regularly peddles conspiracy theories.

While criticism from his active players died down, former players seemed unconvinced Gundy was really willing to change his approach to racial issues.Racial inequality — specifically in regards to police use of force — has been a central issue in the U.S. over the past month, leading droves of people into the street to protest. The movement has inspired student-athletes across the country to speak up about how their schools make black students feel.
