Erie County Executive Mark Polancarz doubts the statistics in his region, the Buffalo-area, will allow the "unpause" by May 15.

Niagara County Chairwoman Rebecca Wydysh agrees that early June is probably a more realistic goal for the western New York region.

Chautauqua County Executive PJ Wendel thinks it's unfair to link his county in the same region as Buffalo, where the infection rate is much higher.

The Jamestown region has just 3 active COVID-19 cases out of a population of more than 128,000 people.
