Mayor Bill de Blasio continued to stress the importance of wearing a mask to combat the coronavirus in New York City.
The mayor says as temperatures begin to drop, more people will want to participate in more indoor activities, but he says it imperative to wear masks while indoors.
A new campaign is geared on reminding people to wear masks indoors on a regular basis unless they are at home.
The mayor says overall they are seeing progress in citywide numbers, especially in those red zone areas in Brooklyn and Queens.
The mayor is also making it clear that people do not need to have symptoms to get tested. He is also encouraging health care workers and first responders, including essential workers, to get tested as frequently as needed.
