June 24, 2021 Expiration of State Disaster Emergency
KEEPING YOU INFORMED…
Governor Cuomo has announced that he will not extend the declaration of the State Disaster Emergency related to COVID-19 that first became effective March 7, 2020 and expires on June 24, 2021 in accordance with Executive Order 202.109.
Although some prior executive orders, on their face, were extended to July 5, 2021, it appears that, unless the State provides otherwise, the executive orders issued with respect to the State Disaster Emergency (Executive Orders 202 through 202.111) will no longer be in effect beginning on June 25, 2021. For example, public bodies will no longer have the authority to exclude the public from attending public meetings. In addition, remote notarization of documents will no longer be authorized.
If you have questions regarding the expiration of the State Disaster Emergency or whether you must continue to comply with any particular executive order, we encourage you to contact Lauren Schnitzer or one of our other attorneys by calling (631) 694-2300.
THIS MEMORANDUM IS MEANT TO ASSIST IN GENERAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE CURRENT LAW. IT IS NOT TO BE REGARDED AS LEGAL ADVICE. THOSE WITH PARTICULAR QUESTIONS SHOULD SEEK THE ADVICE OF COUNSEL.
