Good Wednesday morning:

Yesterday, Governor Cuomo announced that the Mid-Hudson region had hit the benchmarks necessary to begin Phase 1 of the state’s reopening plan and that Long Island was on track to join it today.  The Governor also announced the state is continuing to direct resources and focus targeted efforts on reducing the spread of COVID-19 in lower-income and predominately minority neighborhoods in New York City that are most impacted by the COVID-19 virus and continue to see a disproportionately high number of new COVID cases every day. These efforts will help New York City meet the seven metrics required to begin reopening.

"We're turning the page on the COVID-19 pandemic and we're focusing on two tracks going forward - monitoring the reopening and supercharging the reopening," Governor Cuomo said. "We're starting to reopen in nearly every region all across the state - we have a dashboard available so every New Yorker can see the numbers every day and our regional control groups are studying the numbers and the data. As the reopening process continues, we have to supercharge the reopening to make sure that the economy doesn't just bounce back, but that it comes back better and stronger than ever."

MedTech members Regeneron, Thermo Fisher Scientifc, Barclay Damon, GKG and MPR Associates, and strategic partner FuzeHub, have teamed up to sponsor Propelling New York Forward, MedTech’s new series about the bio/med industry’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and how we begin the process of restarting the economy.  MedTech’s Executive Director, Win Thurlow, thanked these sponsors, noting “these partners recognize the value of supporting New York’s bio/med ecosphere and the importance of working together to maximize our success in a post-pandemic world.”  Propelling New York Forward premiers tomorrow at 2:00 pm with a discussion about the role testing will play in getting Americans back to work.  It’s not too late to join these sponsors.  Contact Joe Hunter for more information.
