Jones Wants To See More Businesses Open In Phase III

Assemblyman Billy Jones thinks businesses should be included in Phase III. He issued a statement reading, “While I am encouraged that many regions, including the North Country have been able to reopen with restrictions, this phased reopening left a large gap between previous guidance and what is projected to be covered under Phase IV. “It seems counterproductive to indicate that large box retail stores can open for business, or 150 individuals can attend an outdoor graduation, but businesses who have long standing practices of disinfecting such as fitness centers, malls, or even bowling alleys, cannot open their doors. Further, these businesses aren’t really reflective of the concepts of events included in Phase IV.
