    Erie County is Now Eligible to Resume Elective Surgeries and Ambulatory Care

    Confirms 1,045 Additional Coronavirus Cases in New York State - Bringing
    Statewide Total to 374,085; New Cases in 46 Counties

    Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced outdoor dining at restaurants will
    be permitted in phase two of reopening. Restaurants in the seven regions that
    have already entered phase two - the Capital Region, Central New York, the
    Finger Lakes, the Mohawk Valley, the North Country, the Southern Tier and
    Western New York - can reopen for outdoor dining beginning tomorrow, June
    4th. Outdoor tables must be spaced six feet apart, all staff must wear face
    coverings and customers must also wear face coverings when not seated.

    Governor Cuomo also announced that Erie County 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, and a total
    of 52 counties can now resume elective surgeries (4 counties do not have
    hospitals).

    "COVID-19 is still a real threat and we're still battling it. I know it's not on the front
    pages today, but it is still in people and in society," Governor Cuomo said. "But
    thanks to the people of New York and the nurses, doctors and essential workers,
    today we have the lowest number of hospitalizations ever and we have the
    lowest death toll ever. We are continuously evaluating activities that can be
    safely reopened, and today we are adding outdoor seating at restaurants to
    phase two."

    The Governor also confirmed 1,045 additional cases of novel coronavirus,
    bringing the statewide total to 374,085 confirmed cases in New York State.
