New York City To Move Further Into Reopening, Some Retail Stores Allowed To Return, Gov. Cuomo Says

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday that New York City is on track to reopen some in-store retail, hair salons and select office spaces with health precautions on Monday as the coronavirus outbreak continues to ease. “I hope people learn from what we have accomplished here in New York,” Cuomo said at his daily press briefing. “I hope people around the country look at New York and say, ‘how did they do that? How did they go from the worst situation in terms of transmission to the best? How did they do that?’” New York City is currently in phase one of the state’s reopening plan, which allows for curbside retail pickup and drop off and the resumption of construction and manufacturing jobs. The phase two reopening will allow for in-store retail businesses to open at no more than 50% maximum occupancy, according to the state’s reopening guidelines. Read more at CNBC.
