(WIVB)- During his Sunday COVID-19 briefing, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced New York professional sports leagues will be able to begin training camps in the state.

Cuomo says the state will work with sports leagues to ensure they can begin training camps as soon as possible.

” We want people to be able to watch sports to the extent people are still staying home. It gives people something to do. It’s a return to normalcy so we are working and encouraging all sports teams to start their training camps as soon as possible and we will work with them to make sure that can happen.”

Teams will be required to follow appropriate health protocols.
