While the Coronavirus pandemic has eased due to the increase in vaccinations, we recognize that our business community continues to need a variety of services and support systems. The Chamber of Commerce has attempted to collect many of those resources here. We hope you find it useful. For up to date information on the status of the Coronavirus and our vaccination rate in Chautauqua County visit the Chautauqua County Health Department Dashboard.
State Restrictions Lifted
With 70% of eligible New York State residents vaccinated by mid-June, Governor Andrew Cuomo lifted the state's COVID-19 restrictions.
Unvaccinated individuals are still responsible for wearing masks per the Centers for Disease Control federal guidance. Masks are still required for all in New York State regardless of vaccination status in the following settings: large-scale indoor event venues, pre-K through 12 schools, public transportation, nursing homes and congregate living sites, and healthcare settings. Read the state bulletin here. More information is available here.
If they choose to do so, businesses may still require face coverings.
