Cuomo Outlines Phased Plan to Reopen NY Economy

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Tuesday outlined additional guidelines for the phased plan to re-open New York on a regional basis. Each of the state’s 10 regions must follow a series of procedures as part of the re-opening plan.

These procedures include a 12-point checklist, ranging from 14-day declines in regional COVID-19 hospitalization rates to plans by industries and individual businesses for keeping employees and consumers safe.

“We’ve come up with a phased plan to re-open New York, so every region in the state has the same opening template as we begin this process,” said Cuomo.

The governor also announced an advisory board of business, community and civic leaders statewide. Totaling more than 100 members, the roster includes New York real estate luminaries, such as Blackstone’s Jonathan Gray, RXR Realty’s Scott Rechler, Rudin Management’s William Rudin, Tishman Speyer’s Rob Speyer and the Real Estate Board of New York’s James Whelan.
