Confirms 1,110 additional coronavirus cases in New York, bringing statewide total to 370,770; new cases in 45 counties

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday announced New York dentists can reopen statewide on Monday.

Dentists' offices will be subject to state guidance on best practices for safety and social distancing.

The Governor also updated New Yorkers on the state's progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. New cases, hospitalizations, intubations and deaths are all declining as of Saturday.

"The reduction in New York's new COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, intubations and other metrics represent tremendous progress from where we were," Cuomo said. "We have gone through hell and back – we are on the other side – and it's a lesson for all of us; and we need to stay vigilant as we reopen different parts of the state so that we don't backslide. 

“I am also authorizing dentists to resume their practices statewide starting tomorrow as long as they follow health and safety guidelines that the state is laying out and that we have been discussing with them."

The governor confirmed 1,110 additional cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the statewide total to 370,770 confirmed.
