WNY will Begin Phase 2 of Reopening Tomorrow [Poll]
Governor Cuomo announced this morning that WNY will begin phase two of reopening tomorrow (June 2).
This morning (June 1), New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that WNY will begin phase two tomorrow. Our region includes Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Niagara counties, according to WKBW. Phase two will allow businesses that include professional services, retail, administrative support and real estate to reopen. Barber shops and salons, which are also a part of phase two, will begin to reopen.
The state has issued guidelines for each of the sectors allowed to reopen under phase 2. Malls, for instance, must stay closed, except for stores that have their own outside entrance and exit. Walden Galleria has started offering curbside pickup. Dine-in restaurants also must remained closed. They can only offer takeout or delivery.
Are you comfortable with the rate at which WNY is reopening? I definitely think we have done a better job at following the science and statistics, compared to other states that rushed to reopen. Even though we are reopening, I'm still a bit cautious, personally, about heading out into crowds or even more intimate situations, like the hair salon. How are you feeling about it?
