New COVID-19 cases in New York coming from people leaving home: Cuomo
Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Saturday the state’s new confirmed COVID-19 cases are predominantly coming from people who left their homes to go shop, exercise or socialize and not from essential workers.

“That person got infected and went to the hospital or that person got infected and went home and infected the other people at home,” he said during his daily news conference on the coronavirus.

State data showed that the number of new cases statewide has fluctuated between 2,100 and 2,500 per day. The number of new cases decreased to 2,419 on Saturday from 2,762 on Friday.

Cuomo said he theorized last week that new cases were coming from essential workers. “That was exactly wrong,” he said. “The infection rate among essential workers is lower than the general population and those new cases are coming predominantly from people who are not working and they are at home.”

The state’s budget director, Robert Mujica, said officials expect to “learn a lot more” about the genesis of new cases from contact tracing over the next week. The state just began contact tracing, which will involve several hundred people, he said. Cuomo said the five regions that have already opened were required to have a certain number of tracers proportionate to their populations. “The tracing operation is tremendously large and challenging,” he said.

So what's your suggestion? Seriously.
I mean even the Democrat governors who were all "Not even one life is worth saving the entire economy" are talking about opening up because they realize a. that what we're doing is unsustainable b. what we're doing is increasingly unpopular c. People are just starting to ignore the guidelines.
There will be new cases no matter what you do, stay home, don't stay home. All you can do is mitigate risk. Decide what risks you're willing to take and which ones you aren't. You CANNOT make everyone stay inside forever. You just can't. So we have to start figuring out how to live with the risk of covid because there is literally no other choice.

Once again. Flatten the curve. We aren’t eradicating the curve. The goal isn’t no cases ever again. That’s not going to happen. The goal is that once things slow, open it up some more, let more people get sick but have access to hospitals and doctors that aren’t overwhelmed.

Or the alternative is to go full China and shoot anyone that leaves the house.
