BUFFALO, N.Y. — Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz released new COVID-19 hospitalization numbers Sunday morning.

The Western New York region, which includes Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties are currently in phase one of reopening. If WNY continues to maintain benchmarks set by health officials, the region can move on to phase 2. No exact date has been set for when phase 2 will begin for the WNY region.
