NYS Reopening Requirements
Phase 1 Re-Opening Requirements
The Governor Cuomo’s office has released guidelines and business safety templates for industries allowed to begin reopening in phase one. As of Friday, May 15, select industries in regions of the state that have met seven public health metrics will be allowed to start reopening. Below is a list of industries allowed to open in these regions during phase one, along with their guidelines and business safety templates.
Businesses and industries will open in a phased approach.
Phase 1 includes construction, manufacturing and select retail (with curbside pickup).
Business owners must read the “Detailed Guidelines” for their industries and provide their digital signature affirming they have read and understand the document.
The State has published a dashboard to track the public health data regions must meet to reopen here.
Each re-opening business must develop a written Safety Plan outlining how its workplace will prevent the spread of COVID-19. A business may fill out this template to fulfill the requirement, or may develop its own Safety Plan.
