NEW YORK (77 WABC) – Governor Cuomo announced that deaths and hospitalizations continue decline throughout the state of New York, however there were another 226 that died on Sunday.

Cuomo discussed the state reopening by region once again, saying there must be a 14-day decline in deaths and hospitalizations on a three-day rolling average.

The Governor will be looking to regional leaders as they plan to reopen their parts of the state when the PAUSE order expires on May 15.  Cuomo wants to make sure these regions have a health care system in place, testing and tracing in place, and to be sure businesses are prepared to reopen under the “new normal”.

“This can’t just be we want to get out of the house,” said Cuomo as he stressed to the need to base decisions on facts and data.

The Governor made clear that regions should begin working now on how to reopen in a phased approach.
