The Governor’s Office has updated its NY Forward website to allow businesses to look up their eligibility to re-open and what standards they have to comply with in order to be open. Businesses can search by county and business category (by NAICS code).

New York Forward Business Re-opening Lookup Tool

Businesses in each region will be able to re-open in phases. Re-opening refers to non-essential businesses and business activities. Essential businesses and business activities that are open, will be able to remain open.

The guidelines accessible via this tool apply to both non-essential businesses in regions that are permitted to re-open, and essential businesses throughout the state that were previously permitted to remain open. This tool will help you determine whether or not your business is eligible to re-open, and the public health and safety standards with which your business must comply. Eligibility for re-opening will be determined by health metrics for each region.
