The Governor has amended Executive Order 202.40 for those regions that have reached Phase Two of reopening: all nursing homes and all adult care facilities must test or make arrangements for the testing of all personnel, including all employees, contract staff, medical staff, operators and adminsitrators, for COVID-19, once per week. https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/no-20240-continuing-temporary-suspension-and-modification-laws-relating-disaster-emergency
Phase 3 is opening this Friday, June 12th. With that in mind, everyone waiting on Phase 3 should be developing and implementing their Business Safety Plan to the best of your ability and geared toward your organization whether it be a business, house of worship, non-for-profit organization, etc. You are responsible to have your plan and all necessary supplies in place prior to opening. You will not be submitting your plan, however it must be on the premises in the event of a state, local or safety inspection.
