Andrew Cuomo finally said goodbye to his daily reports and enjoyed a well-deserved break with his daughters for Father’s Day weekend. During the weekend, Andrew’s daughter Mariah Kennedy Cuomo shared a picture while out and about with her father at a park, “Fathers Day drive with the best!❤️”. After 111 days, Andrew wrapped his coronavirus briefings announcing good news and a farewell for now. “Today is the first day without a press conference in 112 days... so proud of @nygovcuomo and a reminder: today is Saturday,” shared Mariah.
Finally, the father-of-three decided to go off duty and enjoy a relaxing time with his daughters. With his hair unkempt and a tan on his skin, he had two enjoyable days out with his girls. Unfortunately, Andrew’s youngest daughter, Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo was unable to walk the stage during her graduation ceremony from Brown University due to COVID-19. “Congratulations to all 2020 graduates. While the celebrations are different this year, the pride is even stronger. And to my daughter Michaela, who officially graduates today: The best is yet to come. That I promise,” mentioned Andrew on his social media.
Despite all the challenges, Andrew’s family has prevailed and was able to fight together during these unprecedented times. “I want to thank my Cara, Mariah and Michaela for keeping me grounded and making me laugh at times I thought I would cry,” shared Andrew on his final briefing. He also was able to have some bonding time with Mariah’s boyfriend when he quarantined with them.
According to his last briefing, New York has the lowest weekly infection rate and the lowest weekly average of lives lost seen since the start of the global pandemic. “We will remember them in our thoughts and prayers,” shared the governor. New York City begins phase two on Monday, June 22. Though this is the beginning of a new normal, the spread of COVID-19 is not over and Andrew advises to monitor the local infection rate, watch out for a second wave and keep an eye on other infections coming from other states. While New York had more cases per capita and more people infected than any nation in the world, the city finally is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and re-opening restaurants.
