During a press conference this morning, Governor Cuomo announced that his previous stay-at-home order, which required all non-essential businesses to keep 100% of their workforces at home, would be extended through April 29, 2020. The Governor also indicated that schools would remain closed through the same date.

Governor Cuomo’s initial stay-at-home order, Executive Order 202.6, required non-essential businesses to keep 50% of their workforces at home beginning on March 20, 2020. The Governor then issued Executive Order 202.7, which increased the percentage of the workforce that must stay at home to 75%, followed by Executive Order 202.8, which increased the percentage to 100%. Executive Order 202.8 was to remain in place until April 19, 2020.

An executive order embodying the extension of the stay-at-home order through April 29th has not yet been published, but we expect that it will be this evening.
