In order for a business to open it must create a business safety plan.  There are templates available on the NY Forward Website.  Businesses must also submit an affirmation that they have a safety plan and the plan must be made available upon inspection by the Health Department.

Tompkins County has created a Moving Forward Resource Web Page that provides guidance on the state requirements.
