Cuomo emphasizes the need to be guided by experts and data and science, before turning the briefing over to New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.

"We do know this: that an economic recovery only occurs on the back of a complete health care recovery," he says, via phone.

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont up next, noting that the pandemic has hit the I-95 corridor, calling it the "Covid Corridor."

Lamont cautions against pulling the trigger too early on reopening.

Next up is Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, who says the plan has to be responsible but show us that we do have a future.

"I think we're going to show the people of the United States how you come out of something as devastating as this in a responsible fashion."

Like Conn.'s leader, Delaware Governor John Carney emphasizes the toll of the pandemic along I-95, the major highway connecting the east coast of the United States.

"How do we open things in a way that's safe?" Carney says, agreeing that you can't open it w/o protecting health.

Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo applauds Cuomo's initiative for a "smart, targeted approach" to "slowly" open the economy that protects the vulnerable.

"Throughout the crisis, the governors have been the one showing great leadership & taking actions to keep our residents safe."

"The reality is that this virus doesn't care about state borders, and we shouldn't either," Raimondo adds.
