Southern Tier businesses can begin Phase 1 of New York State reopening. The Empire State Development partners have put together the state required guidance and a business plan template for each industry type reopening May 15, 2020. Essential businesses that have remained open MUST comply with these guidelines and develop the required plan as well. These can be found here by clicking on the appropriate industry. The expanded list of Phase 1 industries is included for your reference.
