On March 27, 2020 New York State revised its definition of essential business as to state that
“All non-essential construction must shut down except emergency construction, (e.g. a project necessary to protect health and safety of the occupants, or to continue a project if it would be unsafe to allow to remain undone until it is safe to shut the site). “
Under this revised definition
- Pool construction is no longer permitted. This includes both currently open construction as well as new construction.
- Construction work does not include a single worker, who is the sole employee/worker on a job site.
- Companies can continue to provide pool & spa service.
NEW GUIDANCE FROM THE STATE:
- Pool opening has NOT been determined to be an essential business and does not currently fall under pool/spa maintenance which continues to be an essential business.
FIVE STAR POOL SERVICES WILL BE BACK TO WORK AS SOON AS WE ARE ALLOWED TO BASED ON NYS GUIDELINES.
