As New York City enters phase one of reopening today, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that New York City is now eligible to resume elective surgeries and ambulatory care. The Governor previously announced that the state will allow elective outpatient treatments to resume in counties and hospitals without significant risk of COVID-19 surge in the near term. 

Governor Cuomo also announced the state is opening 14 new temporary testing sites at churches located in communities particularly impacted by COVID-19, in partnership with Northwell Health and SOMOS Community Care. The state is continuing to focus efforts on reducing the infection rate of COVID-19 in New York City hotspot neighborhoods that have been impacted the most by the virus.

Today we are turning the page on the COVID-19 virus as we reopen New York City - we didn't just flatten the curve, we bent it, and we did it all based on data and facts.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

"Today we are turning the page on the COVID-19 virus as we reopen New York City - we didn't just flatten the curve, we bent it, and we did it all based on data and facts," Governor Cuomo said. "You look at where we are now with our testing results and we now have the lowest levels in the state since March 16th, and that's why I have confidence saying to New Yorkers that we are ready to reopen. All this progress has been made because of our hard work, and we can't get sloppy now or else we'll see those numbers start to go back up." 

Finally, the Governor confirmed 702 additional cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the statewide total to 378,799 confirmed cases in New York State. Of the 378,799 total individuals who tested positive for the virus, the geographic breakdown is as follows:
