Reopening Allegany County
Allegany County, part of the Western New York Region, entered into Phase four on Tuesday, June 30. All businesses are required to prepare a COVID-19 Re-Opening Health and Safety Plan and have it available for review at the time of re-opening. In developing their plans, employers must also consider the implications of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
Businesses that are re-opening are also required to affirm that they are in compliance with NYS Health & Safety Guidelines at the time of re-opening. For more information on how to complete this affirmation, watch ACCORD’s instructional video: A How-To Guide on Affirming your Business is in Compliance with New York State Health and Safety Guidelines, and Completing your Safety Plan for Your Business to Reopen
New York State has designated certain businesses and activities as essential under Executive Order 202.6 with guidance for determining whether a business is essential here. Those designated as essential must still comply with other guidance and/or directives. Those exempt from the reductions include state and local governments, including municipalities, authorities and school districts; however they must still comply with other provisions.
