This week, marked an exciting moment for Westchester residents as we entered Phase 2 of the Governor’s reopening plans. Outdoor dining is bustling and some salons have waitlists until July. And while we are all eager and ready to get out there and visit our local businesses, it’s also important to note that COVID-19 is still out there, so please be sure to research and follow all the new guidelines of your favorite local business before you visit.
This includes wearing masks, maintaining social distance (with other parties) and making reservations. This also includes staying home if you are sick or anyone in your household has been sick and please get tested at one of the nearby testing facilities if you do feel ill.
The following businesses are open for Phase 2:
Commercial Building Management
