With the territory headed for Memorial Day weekend, Genesee District Chair Shelly Stein reminded residents that while Phase 1 businesses had reopened, Phase 2 was in their hands and depended on their actions.
“Take the time to protect yourself and your family,” he said. “The planned family meeting is subject to the NY PAUSE limit, which is no more than 10 people. Do this for others who are more vulnerable, if not for yourself and other family members. “
Pettit said businesses in other phases were required to have an opening plan, and had to start the conversation. With phase opening driven by data, the difference between the present phases may be a minimum of two weeks.
He said plans must focus on social distance, washing and reducing capacity.
