By Staff

May 20, 2020: Below is the local COVID-19 report for this past week.

NY Reopening Update 

On Monday, May 11, New York State launched a "Regional Monitoring Dashboard," which shows where each region stands in meeting the reopening metrics.  As of May 19, 2020, the Mid-Hudson region, which includes Westchester, had met 5 of the 7 requirements.

According to the NY Forward Reopening Guide, when a region meets the criteria, the region can reopen businesses in phases, "with at least two weeks in between each phase" so that state and local leaders can monitor the effects of the reopening.

When they reopen, each business and industry "must have a plan to protect employees and consumers, make the physical work space safer and implement processes that lower risk of infection in the business." 

Below are the businesses that can open in each phase.

Phase 1 Businesses: construction, manufacturing, wholesale, trade, select retail for curbside pickup only, agriculture, forestry, and fishing.

Phase 2 Businesses: professional services, finance and insurance, retail, administrative support, real estate, rental, and leasing.

Phase 3 Businesses: restaurants and food services

Phase 4 Businesses: arts, entertainment, and recreation, education
