COVID-19: McCarthy Tire to Continue Operating in New York State as an Essential Business

March 22, 2020 – Governor Andrew Cuomo has issued Executive Order 202.6 regarding the closure of all non-essential businesses in New York State. McCarthy Tire Service’s businesses are considered essential, and we are authorized to continue operations.


The Governor’s Order 202.6 specifically exempts a list of industries from the shutdown that are considered to be essential, including:

  • Auto repair.
  • Warehouse distribution/fulfillment.
  • Storage for essential businesses.
  • Essential services necessary to maintain the safety, sanitation, and essential operations of residences and other essential businesses.
  • Vendors that provide essential services or products for essential government services and logistics.

McCarthy Tire falls under these exemptions. Our business is important to the national and local supply chain, as well as critical services. We provide tires and services for:

  • Fleets carrying food, water, and consumer goods to grocery stores, and medical supplies to hospitals.
  • Forklifts and material handling equipment used to move goods in and out of warehouses and ports.
  • Vehicles transporting trash, recycling, and medical waste.
  • Trucks and equipment for local government agencies and municipalities.
  • Vehicles used by public utility companies, tradespeople, and farmers.
  • Personal cars and trucks used by first responders, health care professionals, grocery store and pharmacy staff, the Red Cross, and other essential businesses.
