Four step plan to re-open Rochester businesses announced
Written by Site Hub on May 6, 2020
As this pause is set to expire, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a four-step plan to gradually re-open businesses in New York.
Cuomo announced construction and manufacturing would be allowed to recommence in the first stage of the plan, along with a few select retailers that offer outdoor pick-up. In the second phase, real estate and financial businesses would begin to re-open. The third phase would see hotels and restaurants finally re-open, though some restaurants will be allowed to open during the first and third stages of the plan providing they are only offering a take-out service. The final stage of the plan would see art facilities, entertainment venues, and schools re-open.
There is no specific timeline for how long each phase of the plan will last and the successful implementation of the plan depends on businesses and customers adhering to new rules and social distancing regulations where possible. News of the plan will most likely be welcomed by Rochester business owners who have been living in uncertainty for the past few months.
