Update (1245ET): Following an outbreak at a nursing home in Maryland, it looks like authorities in Mississippi are gearing up to do…absolutely nothing now that an employee at a nursing home in the state has tested positive. There are no plans to test other nursing home employees or patients, beyond scanning for fevers, virtually guaranteeing that the outbreak will worsen and more will die.

In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo held his daily press briefing on Sunday, warning that models project thousands of deaths in New York state from COVID-19 if nothing is done. Cuomo on Sunday extended the New York State’s “PAUSE” directive requiring all non-essential employees to work from home for two weeks, to April 15, as the number of positive cases in the state rose to 59,513, up 7,195 in a day.

Cuomo made the announcement at around noon on Sunday less than a day after the CDC issued a 14-day travel advisory for New York, New Jersey and Connecticut as the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the tri-state surpassed 65,000.

New York State has now seen 965 coronavirus-related deaths, Cuomo said, up from 728 on Saturday. As of Sunday afternoon, 8,503 people in the state were hospitalized, 2,037 of whom were in the ICU. A total of 3,572 patients with COVID-19 have been discharged. As of 9:30 a.m. Sunday, 32,308 people in New York City had tested positive for the novel coronavirus, and 678 people had died in the city.

New York State registered new cases, with total cases surpassing 59,000 on Sunday. 965 people have died from the novel coronavirus in the last day, bringing New York State’s death toll to: “It’s the acutely ill, by-in-large who are the vulnerable population.”

Cuomo is still answering questions:
