UPDATE – May 14, 2020 Reopening New York New York State remains on PAUSE through May 15, 2020, after which phase one of Governor Cuomo’s reopening plan launches.  The phased plan is based on meeting key public health metrics and will reopen New York on a regional basis.  Among other things, in order to reopen, a region must: (1) experience a 14-day decline in total net hospitalizations and deaths on a three-day rolling average; (2) have at least 30 percent hospital and ICU beds available and 90 days of personal protective equipment stockpiled; (3) have the capacity to conduct 30 diagnostic tests for every 1,000 residents per month; and (4) have a baseline of 30 contact tracers for every 100,000 residents.  New York is tracking these and other metrics for each region online via the Regional Monitoring Dashboard.
