WARREN COUNY (NEWS10) — The region moved into Phase 2 of business re-opening on Wednesday, with professional offices, retail stores and some categories of personal care businesses getting the go-ahead to resume operations with precautions in place.

To see what businesses and restaurants are now open, Warren County’s COVID Hub website has a tool that allows businesses to report re-opening and have their locations plotted on a county map for public consumption. Please use this link to report re-opening, or view the map.
Looking ahead, if metrics remain good, County Officals say Phase 3 would begin June 17. That would allow restaurants to allow inside seating for dining.
