Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday updated New Yorkers on the state's progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

The governor also announced that global public health experts cleared the Mid-Hudson Valley to enter phase three of reopening on Tuesday. Long Island is on track to enter on Wednesday. Business guidance for phase three of the state's reopening plan is available here.

"In New York, we've been following the science and the data and the metrics from day one. We have the best numbers that we've had since this started today in New York," Cuomo said. "Yesterday, we only had 10 deaths, down from a high of 800. We have about 1,000 people in our hospitals, which is one of the lowest numbers we've had since this began. Because of the changes New Yorkers made, we now have the lowest transmission rate in the United States of America."

Today's data is summarized briefly below:

Deaths: 10, lowest since March 21

Hospitalizations: 1,122 (down from 1,142 the day before)

ICU hospitalizations: 330
