Overview

Essential businesses can operate throughout New York State.  Refer to Empire State Development's Essential Business Guidance to determine if your business is designated as essential. 

ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES

New York State is permitting certain commercial and recreational activities to operate statewide with restrictions.  Refer to the guidance below as it may apply to you or your business.

 

  • Certain businesses and places of arts and entertainment, such as multi-disciplinary event venues and theater spaces, may reopen to the public only for the limited purpose of conducting activities and operations that have been permitted as a part of the State’s phased reopening (e.g., low-risk indoor arts and entertainment, media production).  Please consult the specific New York Forward guidance as it applies to the currently permitted activities and operations.
