    The Governor also announced that as New York City enters phase one, the state
    is launching a new focused testing strategy in the city to closely monitor the
    reopening. The state is aiming to perform approximately 35,000 tests per day in
    New York City. Additionally, the state is prioritizing 15 testing sites across the city
    for individuals who have participated in recent protests. More information on

    The Governor also announced the Mid-Hudson Valley is on track to enter phase
    two of reopening Tuesday, June 9th and Long Island is on track to enter phase
    two of reopening on Wednesday, June 10th following a review of regional data
    by global public health experts.

    "In terms of reopening, we have been calibrating our strategy based on the data
    and the facts, and overall the numbers are down, the numbers are good and our
    plan is working," Governor Cuomo said. "Based on today's numbers we can
    continue to advance our reopening, and we will now allow outdoor graduations of
    up to 150 beginning June 26th. New Yorkers have worked together to bend this
    curve quickly, and if we continue on this trajectory, remain responsible and follow
    all social distancing protocols, we can keep accelerating our reopening strategy."

    Finally, the Governor confirmed 781 additional cases of novel coronavirus,
    bringing the statewide total to 378,097 confirmed cases in New York State.
