NYS Business Reopening Safety Plan Template

New York State has released new guidance for businesses regarding how the reopening of our economy will proceed and what businesses must do to comply. Businesses in each region will re-open in phases.


Here's what you need to know:


Businesses in each region will re-open in phases. Re-opening refers to non-essential businesses and business activities. Essential businesses and business activities that are open will remain open. Click here for details.


Each re-opening business must develop a written Safety Plan outlining how its workplace will prevent the spread of COVID-19. A business may fill out this template to fulfill the requirement, or may develop its own Safety Plan.


THANKFULLY, your reopening plan does NOT need to be submitted to a state agency for approval. You DO need to retain a copy of your plan on the premises of the business and it must be made available to the New York State Department of Health (DOH) or local health or safety authorities in the event of an inspection.


Business owners should refer to the State’s industry-specific guidance for more information on how to safely operate. You can also check out our "Reopening Protocols" to obtain specific recommendations from the CDC, OSHA, the US Chamber and many different industry specific associations to help you create your plan.

Additional Resources To Help You Prepare

As we look to safely reopen Saratoga County's local economy keeping HEALTH as our first priority, we're inspired by the willingness of local small business owners and employers across a wide range of sectors to consider a range of new protocolcs to ensure that their employees, customers, clients and visitors to Saratoga County are as safe as possible.

This webpage includes links to the recommendations and guidance documents provided by the CDC, OSHA, the US Chamber of Commerce and other industry associations at the federal and state level.

We want to invite Saratoga County's employers to review all of the information here that is relevant to your workplace. This will help you to devise a plan for your own workplace to reopen based on the best advice available at this time.
