ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Monroe County leaders are meeting daily to talk about what their reopening plan will look like. 

County Executive Adam Bello and Health Commissioner Michael Mendoza say it'll be slow, just as the governor has indicated. 

They say some construction and manufacturing jobs will begin again on May 15, but not all of them and nothing more than that, at this point.  

Businesses and retailers will also likely still have to insist employees wear masks and they'll have to sanitize often.

“At the end of the day, everybody has to use their judgment and unlike a medical decision where that judgment really only impacts us, today our judgment impacts everybody and we've got to find a way, as a community to think about one another,” Mendoza said.

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President Bob Duffy is advising the governor on reopening the Finger Lakes area.

He says he's wrapping up local meetings this week and hoping to start those discussions with Albany very soon.
