Open Restaurants Safety Enhancement Info

By NYC Hospitality Alliance

Please see the following information from NYC DOT about safety enhancement giveaways and a reminder about updated safety guidance regarding the Open Restaurants program:

On select days between November 24 and December 11, NYC DOT will be distributing free sandbags, snow stakes, and reflective tape to keep your roadway seating barriers as safe as possible during the winter months. See the flyer below with all the details about these safety enhancements.

As a reminder, we have also included a second document below that contains all updated safety guidance first announced on November 13. These upgrades are mandatory and must be completed by December 15.

If you have questions or need more support to reopen your business the Department of Small Business Services has set up a hotline at 888-SBS-4NYC or 888-727-4692. You can also send DOT questions at the following link:
