State of Emergency Remains in Effect. Cold Calling is Still Prohibited.
Governor Cuomo announced yesterday that most of the remaining COVID-19 related restrictions on businesses are now lifted. Governor Cuomo did NOT remove the State of Emergency. This means that cold calling restrictions Governor Cuomo placed on businesses like yours is still in effect. NYSAR strongly believes that the cold calling prohibition is unnecessary, unfair and MUST end.  NYSAR is continuing to press Governor Cuomo to lift the cold calling ban and we need your help. Please click on this link to send an email to Governor Cuomo or call him directly at 518-474-8390 and tell him the cold calling prohibition must end now!
