The New York Forward Business Guidance Wizard is no longer active.

The New York Forward Business Guidance Wizard provided information with respect to COVID-19-related health protocols and restrictions on businesses and business activities. However, as of June 15, 2021, over 70 percent of adult New Yorkers had received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and the rate of new COVID-19 cases has significantly decreased. Given New York’s progress and the diminished risk of COVID-19 within the community, the State lifted almost all COVID-19 restrictions.

As a result of this progress, the New York Forward Business Guidance Wizard has been deactivated. For current and archived COVID-19 guidance, please visit Thank you for helping to build New York back better.
