Cuomo takes aim at houses of worship, mass gatherings in hot spots

Cuomo said the severity of shutdowns would vary by proximity to hot spots. The rules will take effect no later than Friday in parts of Brooklyn and Queens, sections of Orange and Rockland counties north of the city, and an area within Binghamton near the Pennsylvania border.
