Long Island will begin the second phase of reopening sooner than later this month under the state’s ‘NY Forward’ guidance.
Officials in Suffolk and Nassau are expecting to reopen on Wednesday, June 10, according to published reports. That means next week could potentially see more offices, retailers, and hair salons opening up. However, tattoo parlors and nail salons are excluded from reopening under current Phase 2 guidance.
Small business owners reopening this month will still be required to adhere to state guidelines, including limiting customers and employees to 50% of the maximum, establishing designated areas for pick-ups and deliveries, and not offering product samples, water fountains and magazine areas.
More information about which industries are permitted to reopen in Phase 2, including health and safety guidance, is available on the state’s NY Forward website.
