Mayor Bill de Blasio signed seven pieces of legislation providing relief for tenants, commercial establishments, and restaurants during the COVID-19 pandemic.


      The new laws support struggling small businesses by:

  • Imposing limits that third-party food delivery services can charge restaurants to 15% per order for delivery and 5% per order for any other charge

  • Extending the suspension of sidewalk cafe fee collection from restaurants to February 28, 2021

  • Protecting commercial tenants that were subject to capacity restrictions, forced to close, or business owners who contracted COVID-19 from harassment and personal liability. 

  • Suspending renewal requirements for licenses and permits from City agencies during the duration of the emergency and extends such suspension for an extra 45 days
