COVID-19: Businesses and Schools

Most businesses and schools are now allowed to be open in New York City. Employers, administrators and other responsible parties must review, attest to and comply with New York State’s industry-specific guidance.

Learn more about New York State guidance for each industry.

Scheduled Events

If required by New York State, your business must complete an online notification form at least five days before a large indoor event.

Cases at the Workplace

In addition to following the required State guidelines, employers should know how to handle cases of COVID-19 in the workplace:

The best way to avoid cases at the workplace is to get vaccinated. Make an appointment online, or by calling 877-VAX-4NYC (877-829-4692). Most City-run sites are now also offering walk-up vaccinations for New Yorkers.

Schools and Child Care

Pre-K to grade 12 schools that want to change their reopening plan must submit their modified plan online.
