New York City is on track to enter phase two of Covid-19 reopening on Monday, according to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and spokesperson Freddi Goldstein.
The state continues to be “on the right path toward defeating the virus,” the governor said in a news release, noting that the state saw less than 1% positivity rate for the virus in the tests conducted Saturday.
"The Covid-19 pandemic isn't over, and as we reopen New York safely and incrementally, the state government will continue to provide timely information so that New Yorkers can make educated decisions for themselves and their families," the governor said.
New York state added 664 coronavirus cases, had 1,142 hospitalizations and 15 deaths across the state on June 21.
