ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — In a tweet sent by Governor Andrew Cuomo Thursday night, he asks for help from recently retired health care professionals, current nursing students and qualified staff to be part of a reserve staff if the need arises.

As more testing is conducted, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in New York State continues to rise. The state is taking steps to collect applications from a reserve staff if the need for more health care professionals is necessary.

The state developed a webpage with more information for those interested in applying.

The call is for recently retired health professionals and School of Public Health, School of Medicine, or School of Nursing Administrators.
