Message from our Executive Director: Broome County Reopening Playbook and Webinar

Binghamton Business News

Well, we’re almost through day one of the Southern Tier Phase 1 Reopening. We are here because we placed a commitment to public health and safety and the protection of our family, friends and community above everything else.

We should continue this same level of care as we reopen, being mindful that the course to the next phase is what we do during this one. I am confident that we can forge a path of recovery…together.

We know that there is a lot of work ahead, but we’re ready. When the COVID 19 crisis was beginning, one of the biggest needs of our community was a central location for information. We then launched Business Resilience Toolkit to provide information on resources for the most immediate needs. We are still updating that document on a weekly basis and it continues to be a source of information on financial and other resources to navigate the impact on your business or organization.

Today, we are launching the Broome County Reopening Playbook to provide a one-stop source for the information you need to safely and responsibly reopen your business in the weeks ahead. This guide provides links to New York State guidelines, CDC guidelines, industry sector information and how you can access critical PPE that you will need to reopen. Download Playbook Here

We also invite you to attend our upcoming webinar on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. on Southern Tier Reopening Guidelines. Register Here

By focusing on the health and safety of others, our economy can recover and become stronger than ever.

Wishing you health, happiness and prosperity today and every day.
