Just like old times!

Disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday shamelessly tried to reprise his role as man-in-charge, using one of his famous COVID-19 press conferences to remind New Yorkers to remain vigilant amid the spread of the Omicron variant.

“Let’s heed the lessons we learned in the early, horrific days of this pandemic and not go backwards,” he said in a tweet, which featured a slide used during one of his pandemic briefings.

The presentation reads: “Lesson to learn: An outbreak anywhere is an outbreak everywhere.”

“Wear a [mask] in public indoor spaces, get vaccinated AND your booster shot, take care of one another,” the former governor, who resigned in August amid multiple scandals, added. “And be #NYTough.”

During the throes of the pandemic, Cuomo delivered daily briefings revealing the Empire State’s COVID-19 metrics — along with meandering commentary and show-off stunts.

In June 2020, Cuomo displayed $415 COVID-19 mountain that supposedly represented New York’s battle against the virus. Joined by Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious-disease doctor, he bizarrely compared the fellow Italian American and himself to actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro.  

His younger brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo also dialed into the briefings to detail his symptoms when stricken with the virus.

“Let’s heed the lessons we learned in the early, horrific days of this pandemic,” former Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted out.

The governor was momentarily bestowed an Emmy for “effective use of television during the pandemic” in November 2020 — but the academy quickly yanked the accolade after state Attorney General Letitia James found Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women.

Cuomo’s Sunday morning tweet came after former top aide Melissa DeRosa audaciously took a shot at her boss’ successor, Gov. Kathy Hochul.

“Time to shift with the times — ribbon cuttings and photo ops drinking beers in UES bars maskless won’t get this job done,”  the former secretary to the governor said Friday evening in a since-deleted tweet, referring to the current chief executive’s October visit to Manhattan sports bar.

The scandal-scarred ex-pol’s public service announcement comes after the World Health Organization identified a new COVID-19 variant, Omicron, on Friday.

The discovery prompted Hochul to sign an executive order postponing non-essential surgeries in hospitals with a limited capacity.

The Omicron variant has yet to be identified in New York State, though on Sunday two cases of the coronavirus variant were detected in Canada.
