New York City, closed down due to the Coronavirus pandemic, is expected to begin a “phase one” reopening on June 8, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday.
“We know where the hot spots are in the city, we want to focus on them next week, be ready to open,” Cuomo said during a news conference in New Rochelle, New York. “We’re on track to open on June 8, which is one week from Monday.”
The Long Island and Mid-Hudson regions began their phase one reopening this week, leaving New York City the only region in the state to remain under Cuomo’s full stay-at-home order.
