Good evening,

Late Friday morning, Governor Andrew Cuomo posted his fifty-first Executive Order during this state of emergency.  Executive Order 202.50, issued on July 9, 2020, continues the suspensions and modifications of law, and any directives, not superseded by a subsequent directive, made by Executive Order 202.30 and Executive Order 202.40, which amended the directives contained in Executive Order 202.30, for another thirty days through August 8, 2020.  In addition, Executive Order 202.50 sets forth certain directives, all of which are designed to address matters related to the COVID-19 crisis.  Executive Order 202.50 is effective from July 9, 2020 through August 8, 2020.   A copy of Executive Order 202.50 can be found here.


Suburbanites Rejoice.  You can go back to the mall!

  • Since March 18, 2020, the indoor common areas of shopping malls across New York State have been closed to the public. Pursuant to Executive Order 202.50, the directive contained in Executive Order 202.5, that required closure to the public of all indoor common portions of retail shopping malls, which had been extended, and continued and modified in Executive Order 202.48, is amended to allow such malls to open in regions of the state that are in Phase Four of the state’s reopening, so long as such malls adhere to Department of Health issued guidance, effective 12:01am on Friday, July 10, 2020.  Accordingly, all such malls, except for malls in New York City, can now reopen.  I can’t wait to get my Cinnabon.
