Gov. Shutdowns And Re-Openings Need To Be Executed More Evenly Among Businesses
Businesses that have been left behind from New York and New Jersey’s Phase Four opening are frustrated, angry and filing lawsuits. Gyms, yoga studio, movies and other still-shuttered concerns allege closures are arbitrary and are costing the business undue harm, potentially even their demise.
Government-issued orders to shut down due to coronavirus in March were largely executed across the board, which put owners on a level playing field. Understandably, some businesses are more vulnerable to the spread of the virus and we’ve been witnessing phased reopening. But at this point, some businesses are still in a holding pattern, with no known date for reopening in New York and New Jersey. This is unjustifiable.
We can expect to see a tsunami of litigation now and in the coming months.
