Challenges remain for schools and businesses despite loosened state restrictions.
“It means a lot,” Dottie Gallagher, President and CEO of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, said. “I think the fact that the maximum capacity percentage goes up will make a meaningful difference for all the businesses that are impacted.”
Many businesses, including gyms, barber shops, restaurants, are now allowed to increase their capacities. Schools no longer have a testing requirement to stay open in the cluster zones. No doubt, it’s caused some relief in the business and education community.
