On Tuesday, the Western New York Region moved to Phase 1 Reopening. This allowed construction; agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting; retail (limited to curbside or in-store pickup or drop off); manufacturing, and wholesale trade businesses to reopen.
“As we move forward with reopening in a safe and responsible manner, I urge everyone to please remain diligent and continue our preventive and social distancing measures so we don’t backtrack by having a spike of COVID-19 cases in our region,” said Wendel.
The north county, according to the county’s map, continues to have the most cases with 44. There are 11 cases in the west, 11 cases in the south and four in the east.
