The Latest Reopening Guidance from New York State

New York State has issued sector-specific reopening guidelines for manufacturing, construction, retail and agribusiness sectors subject to the state’s phase 1 reopening plan. Businesses that are reopening are required to affirm that they’ve read and are complying with the guidelines, and the state provides a template that can be used for required company-specific safety plans.
