On Memorial Day, New York Governor Andrew announced that "New York’s state and local governments will provide death benefits to the families of essential workers who died while fighting the coronavirus."

The public employees whose families would receive death benefits included health workers, police officers, firefighters, transit workers and emergency medical workers, the governor said. The benefits would be paid out of state and local pension funds.

In his message, Gov. Cuomo referred to the frontline workers as "today's heroes".
