When Did the New York Courts Reopen?

A client asked me today when the New York courts “reopened” from their COVID-19 shutdown.

After speaking with that client I determined he was really asking about when the New York state courts were again accepting filings of new, “non-essential” cases, such as personal injury or insurance coverage actions.

From a number of press releases and memoranda of the New York courts, I compiled and now share with you readers a list of the dates, by counties and regions, when the New York state courts were again "open of  business" (i.e., accepting filings of new civil lawsuits):
