ALBANY – Governor Cuomo announced today that on Tuesday, the seven-county New York region will be allowed to re-open the economy under phase one.
“We are ready to go,” said Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus. “We want everyone to stay vigilant and wear masks.”
Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro said the reopening is “a new chapter.” He said public health teams “will be watching all of the data closely to protect our community health.”
Ulster County Executive Patrick Ryan said it is “now even more important that we all do our part to wear masks, maintain social distancing, and wash our hands.”
No cure or vaccine has been created to fight COVID-19, thus the reason for people to stay on their toes and follow the precautions.
Phase one includes allowing construction projects to move forward and stores to reopen with curbside pickup, manufacturing, wholesale trade, agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting.
