BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — The COVID-19 numbers are looking good, but Governor Cuomo is warning New Yorkers to stay disciplined.

He said there are reports of large gatherings across the state, where social distancing is being violated, and people are not wearing masks.

The Governor says the state has received 25,000 complaint calls in recent days.

Bars and restaurants are at the top of the list.

During his daily briefing on Sunday Governor Cuomo had this warning, "We have a task force of state investigators who are out. You can lose your liquor license. And that is a big deal for a bar or restaurant. We are not kidding around with this. You're talking about jeopardizing people's lives. It's a legal violation."
