Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Resources Page

New York State is under a Stay-at-Home (PAUSE) directive until June 27 for regions that are not eligible to re-open. NYC is the only region that has not met all of the reopening criteria. Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo think that NYC's Phase 1 reopening can begin as early as June 8. These are the businesses that can reopen in Phase 1 forward.ny.gov/phase-one-industries. Reopening is expected to bring 200,000 or more additional people to NYC. For more informaton about reopening see the Reopening page.

What is "Stay-at-Home" or PAUSE?
In general, this means that people should not leave their homes except for essentials such as groceries and medicine or emergencies. When outside, cover your nose and mouth with a scarf, bandanna or mask and practice social distancing (6' between people). Businesses that do not provide essential services must close and send workers home. Businesses considered essential could include grocery stores, restaurants that do take out service, pharmacies, organizations that provide services for vulnerable populations, first responders and hardware stores. Public transportation continues to operate to get nurses, doctors, law enforcement officers, and other essential personnel where they need to go. Everyone else: Limit the use of public transportation to only when necessary.

The situation changes by the hour as new information and directives come out. As much as possible we are trying to provide links to trusted source information so that you can check the most up-to-date information. Read more about:
