NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Governor Andrew Cuomo is responding to reports that he arranged special access to COVID tests for his family and friends last year during a time when tests were scarce.
He said that he did not participate in the testing program at that level.
“The people I’ll meet and I’ll be in contact with, I know they’re being checked. So if you come to see me in my office, you will be checked, and that applies to my family as well, ”says Cuomo.
The state parliament is reviewing the charges as part of the impeachment investigation.
The investigation also focused on several allegations of sexual harassment against the governor and controversy over the number of patients in nursing homes who died of coronavirus.
