President Trump reiterated Monday morning he is working closely with governors across the country to determine when to safely re-open the American economy.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo also weighed in.

President Trump told reporters late last week a second Wuhan coronavirus council made up of doctors, economists and business people, will be announced Tuesday.

"We're setting up a council of very, very great doctors and business people. We're going to be announcing it on Tuesday. Some great people. This is beyond economic. I call it our Opening Our Country Task Force or Council," Trump said Friday afternoon. "We're going to have a great group of people."

"I want to get it open as soon as possible," he continued. "I would love to open it. I have not determined anything. The facts are going to determine what I do."

The new council will hold meetings digitally and members will be from cities across the country.
