New York is reopening:

On April 15, Governor Cuomo issued an executive order requiring all people in New York to wear masks or face coverings in public.


There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid exposure.


The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet), through respiratory droplets spread when someone coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. 

We’re in Phase 2 of reopening! As of June 9th, these businesses have been permitted to re-open:

  • Offices

  • Real Estate

  • Certain In-Store Retail

  • Vehicle Sales, Leases, and Rentals

  • Retail Rental, Repair, and Cleaning

  • Commercial Building Management

  • Hair Salons and Barbershops

  • Outdoor and Take-Out/Delivery Food Services

Safety mandates are still in place for these industries.  For example, offices must limit occupancy to a maximum of 50% and if possible, have people maintain a minimum of 6 feet of distance from others. If  a six-foot distance cannot be maintained, people must wear masks or other face coverings

Here’s a link to a full list of mandatory and recommended practices: Phase Two Industries | New York Forward.
