CUOMO SOUNDS DIRE WARNING

ALBANY — As new cases and deaths from COVID-19 increased, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Friday ordered non-essential construction projects to stop, and a state agency told parole officers that 1,100 parole violators who are being held in jails and prisons across New York will be released.

The parolees, who include 600 in New York City jails, will be returned to supervised release, according to people briefed about the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision’s order.
