There are now 2,382 confirmed coronavirus cases in New York State, including 1,339 in New York City.
At least 20 deaths in the state have been linked to the virus.
The statewide hospitalization rate is around 23 percent.
Governor Cuomo says 108 patients in New York have been treated for coronavirus and discharged from New York hospitals.
Governor Cuomo says he's waving Department of Health regulations - such as number of beds in rooms and spacing between beds to get more hospital beds to treat coronavirus patients.
Governor Cuomo says President Trump has authorized the U.S. Navy hospital ship USNS Comfort ito be sent up to New York Harbor to aid the health care response and expand the number of available beds.
The Comfort's planned deployment comes as New York City-area hospitals are clearing out beds, setting up new spaces to triage patients and urging people with mild symptoms to consult health professionals by phone or video chat instead of overrunning emergency rooms.
The Navy said in a statement that it was "working to complete scheduled maintenance cycles and identify necessary medical staffing to deploy as soon as possible.''
It's not clear when it would arrive.
Governor Cuomo is urging businesses to work from home. For those that are not, he's enforcing a mandatory statewide requirement that no business can have more than 50 percent of workforce working outside of the home, excluding essential workers.
