"That store owner has a right to protect themselves, that store owner has a right to protect the other patrons in that store", Cuomo told a daily briefing.

"You have a right to not wear a mask", he continued. "(Store owners) have a right to not let you into their stores".

New York City has been considered the epicenter of the coronavirus, with over 197,000 confirmed cases.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio mandated masks in the city last month. Now, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is looking to put an end to that, at least where he holds sway. "I don't care who you're going to vote for".

Nonessential businesses have been closed in NY since March to help slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. They can say 'I should have the right to come in without a mask, ' " Cuomo added. They need to posse up and get tested. "If you love your grandmother, if you love your elderly mother, your elderly anybody, you should get tested".

"Get tested, wear a mask", both Rock and Perez said.

"I would ask people to try to dial up your empathy and your understanding", he said during an emotional May 22 press briefing.
