Mid-Hudson Region Enters Phase One Reopening
Governor Cuomo announced this weekend that the Mid-Hudson region – which includes Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties – has met the criteria to begin Phase One reopening today, Tuesday, May 26, 2020.
Only businesses in the construction, non-food related agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting, contactless retail, manufacturing, and wholesale trade industries are eligible to reopen as part of Phase One. Detailed breakdowns of these industries are listed below.
In addition to those businesses included in Phase One, the State has also expanded the list of businesses that are deemed essential and therefore are not bound by the Governor’s workforce reduction restrictions. Additionally, Metro-North has announced expanded peak service on the Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven lines beginning Wednesday, May 27 to accommodate Phase One reopening in the Mid-Hudson region.
