Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Saturday that he issued an executive order denying paid sick leave due to the coronavirus to state employees who voluntarily travel to Florida and other high-risk states.

The decision came on a day when Cuomo announced that at least five people who attended a Westchester County high school graduation ceremony have tested positive for the virus after a student returned from a trip to Florida.

Florida is seeing a surge in coronavirus cases as New York’s infection level remains low.
