New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday ordered that all New York City subway cars be cleaned every night by Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) workers to ensure the safety of essential personnel during the coronavirus pandemic.
Any essential worker who shows up and gets on a train should know that that train was disinfected the night before, Cuomo told reporters at his daily coronavirus press briefing.
Letting them endanger their own life and endanger the lives of others is not helping anyone, Cuomo said.
The governor said that he wants the MTA to present to him a plan for the nightly cleanings by Thursday.
Its realistic. Its an essential. How realistic is it? Whats the alternative?" Cuomo said when asked if the state would provide funding to the MTA for the cleaning.
He also commented on reports of the deteriorating state of subway cars during the crisis as the city has allowed homeless people to stay on the cars with their belongings.
"No one wants to live their lives on a subway train," Cuomo said. "We have a higher obligation as a society than to say 'OK, you can sleep in a subway car.'"
