Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced Sunday that New York professional sports leagues will be able to begin training camps in state while following appropriate health protocols. Cuomo said the state would be working with sports teams to resume playing without audiences starting Monday.
"I have been encouraging major sports teams to plan reopenings without fans," Cuomo said. "The games could be televised. New York State will help those major sports franchises to do just that. Hockey, basketball, baseball, football -- whoever can reopen, we're a ready, willing, and able partner.
Cuomo said that he wants to watch the Buffalo Bills play, but stressed that his interest is not subverting the best interests of the state as a whole.
