New York State COVID-19 Update: May 11, 2020
As of May 11th, New York has over 340,000 positive COVID cases and an additional 161 related deaths. Intubation, ICU admissions, and hospitalization rates continue to gradually decline. Governor Cuomo says that the NY PAUSE order, which closed down all nonessential businesses statewide, is set to expire on Friday, May 15th. As the State begins to roll out its reopening plan, the focus will be shifted to localities. Currently, the Southern tier, Mohawk Valley, and Finger Lakes Regions meet metrics for reopening. Today, the Governor announced the members of the “Regional Control Rooms” who will be responsible for monitoring the rate of infection in their assigned regions as business and social activity begins to increase. We will post the list when it becomes available.
