SPECIAL ALERT for outbound contact centers reaching out to New York residents
On Saturday August 21, 2021, outgoing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a disaster for 25 New York counties in anticipation of Tropical Storm Henri. This disaster declaration by Executive Order No.213 automatically triggers a ban on telemarketing to residents of the following 25 counties:
Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, Queens, Richmond, Suffolk, Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange, Dutchess, Sullivan, Columbia, Delaware, Greene, Broome, Chenango, Otsego, Rensselaer, Schoharie, Albany, Montgomery, Schenectady, Saratoga, and contiguous counties—thanks to a provision of the Nuisance Call Act, passed in 2019.
The Executive Order is in effect through September 20, 2021.
