Testing for nursing home staff reduced from twice a week to once a week: The Governor has amended Executive Order 202.40 for those regions that have reached Phase Two of reopening: all nursing homes and all adult care facilities must test or make arrangements for the testing of all personnel, including all employees, contract staff, medical staff, operators and administrators, for Covid-19, once per week.

Phase 3 reopening: At the earliest, Phase 3 may be opened this Friday. However, it will be at the Governor’s discretion. With that in mind, everyone waiting on Phase 3 should be developing and implementing their Business Safety Plan to the best of your ability and geared toward your organization whether it be a business, house of worship, non-for-profit organization, etc.

You are responsible to have your plan in place prior to opening. You will not be submitting your plan, however it must be on the premises in the event of a state, local or safety inspection. Keep checking the New York Forward website for your industry/organization summary guidelines.

Indoor seating: Guidance for indoor seating at restaurants and food services establishments and for personal care services for tattoo, piercing facilities, appearance enhancement practitioners, massage therapy, spas, cosmetology, nail specialty, UV and non-UV tanning, or waxing are now posted on the NY Forward website under Phase Three Industries. Remember plans (including that the affirmation guidance has been read) and supplies have to be in place before opening.

Groups of 10 people or less: Per Governor Cuomo, gatherings (groups, assembly, meeting, etc.) of 10 or less are permitted with social distancing and sanitization protocols in place. The executive order is through June 21 or unless it is extended.
