Westchester and the Hudson Valley are still on track to enter phase four of reopening Tuesday, despite the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases. 
The businesses in this category include:
• Higher education
• Low-risk outdoor arts and entertainment 
• Low-risk indoor arts and entertainment  
• Media production
• Professional sports competitions with no fans
• Food services: Restaurants, food trucks and other food concessions, many of which had been eligible for takeout and outdoor dining services previously

Latimer says people have to keep in mind that social distancing and other safety measures should still remain a part of everyday practice.

"I think people, as they do with everything now....have to be mindful of that level of social connectedness. You go through rituals...longtime friends you extend an elbow to them. It's not what you normally would do, but that's what you have to do and in this kind of situation," he said. 
Social gatherings can now include up to 50 people - up from 25 people.
Indoor religious gatherings will be allowed to have up to 33% capacity.
