"Personal disclosure, I want to watch the Buffalo Bills, but I'm still objective," Cuomo said during his briefing. "I'm acting as governor, there's no personal agenda here. Yes, I do want to watch the Bills, but that is not subverting my role as governor. I think this is in the best interest of all the people and in the best interest of the state of New York. Even though I do have a coincident personal agenda because I want to watch the Bills, but they are separate agendas."
However, the Bills still have a while before the team can begin opening their facility. A league source has confirmed to our own Sal Capaccio that the Bills are not in Phase 1 of the state's reopening, even though Western New York will begin that first phase on Tuesday.
Under Phase 1 guidelines, businesses like construction, agriculture, retail (limited to curbside or in-store pickup or drop off), and manufacturing are allowed to reopen after the state-wide pause due to the coronavirus. The Bills fall under the category of Phase 4, which includes arts, entertainment, recreation and education.
According to Cuomo, each region across the state will continue to reopen in phases, with "at least two weeks in between each phase." That would have the Bills opening their team facilities, at the absolute earliest, on Tuesday, June 30, as long as all continues to go well in the process.
