  •  Essential Business Guidance / new developments Essential Business Guidance / new developments

    Dear Industry Partner:


    We wanted to make you aware of several important new developments for businesses relating to the State's efforts to combat COVID-19:


    1. ESD’s Essential Business Guidance has been updated as of May 16, 2020. Guidance can be found here and is pasted further below.  

    ·     This guidance updates and supersedes any guidance you may have received to date on this topic.

    ·     Any business with a pending inquiry must refer to the updated guidelines or the New York Forward website to determine the status of your business. If your business is included in the list of essential businesses, you do not need confirmation of such by ESD. ESD will not be responding to individual requests for determinations. 

    2. A new online tool has been developed to help determine whether your business is essential or is able to reopen. The New York Forward Business Reopening Lookup Tool can be found here.

    3. The State will be issuing new safety and operating guidelines for businesses, including essential businesses and non-essential businesses that are permitted to reopen. Industry-specific guidelines are currently available for business sectors in Phase One: construction; agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting; retail trade; manufacturing; and wholesale trade. Those requirements can be found here.

    4. Additional information on the phases of reopenings for businesses and industries can be found here.


    Please be advised that both the guidance and the lookup tool are regularly updated. Industry partners are encouraged to continue to check their status for updates.

    APRIL 03, 2020

    The U.S. Small Business Administration released additional guidance on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) last night, making significant modifications to the loan calculation and terms for businesses seeking relief from COVID-19 losses.

    The major changes include:

    Independent contractor payments will not be included in payroll costs when calculating the size of a business’s PPP loan.

    Interest rates on PPP loans will be 1.0%. (Interest will not be applied if a business qualifies for loan forgiveness under the PPP.)

    A new PPP application form was released and replaces the form issued by the SBA earlier this week.
