Combining IF and OR


Hello, brain trust! I have a conundrum that seems easy enough but isn't quite working for me.

I'm trying to reference a range in another sheet, and I only want to count cells if they are within a specific date range and have a status of either "Not Started" or "In Progress."

I know that to count one category, the formula would look something like this:

=COUNTIFS({Status Range}, "Not Started", {Date Range}, >=DATE(2021,1,1))

How do I set up a formula so that it searches for Not Started OR In Progress?

I appreciate your guidance!
