In New York state, 106 people lost their lives to the coronavirus on Sunday, including 23 people who died in nursing homes, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday.

Protecting nursing home residents and other senior citizens are a major priority for the state, Cuomo said. Last week, New York started requiring nursing home staff to be tested twice per week, Cuomo said. The state is sending 320,000 test kits to nursing homes.
