Phase 1 Reopening

Social distancing remains in order by executive order

Phase 1 involves the return of some employees to certain businesses, but all New Yorkers are asked to do their part to continue social distancing in the fight against the pandemic.

Through Phase 1

  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Limit socialization to household members
  • Large gatherings are still not allowed: birthday parties; weddings; block parties; other celebrations
  • Wear face coverings/masks in public, wash hands frequently, limit shopping

The past months have been so difficult for all of us. We appreciate the hard work you've done to help move New York towards reopening. Please hang in there for a little longer to help us keep moving forward.

Phase 1: Stay Home, Stop the Spread. Save Lives.
