New Rochelle and the Mid-Hudson region enter Phase II of the reopening process today, allowing most in-store retail, barbershops and hair salons, professional services, and offices to resume operations.  Outdoor dining is also permitted.  All businesses must have a safety plan, and face masks and physical distancing remain essential.

Local businesses have carried a heavy burden in recent months, with many struggling through this unprecedented challenge.  They deserve our patronage now, so please make a point of supporting businesses in New Rochelle, even as we continue to act responsibly to prevent the spread of the virus.
