translated from Spanish: New York prepares for economic reopening

After more than two months in total quarantine, New York will reopen the economy on Monday, June 8. This was confirmed today by the state’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, at conferences and via social media.

“New York enters Phase 1 reopening tomorrow. New Yorkers doubled the curve by being smart,” Cuomo tweeted, confirming that, just yesterday Saturday, 60,435 COVID-19 tests were done in New York and only 781 people tested positive. With these results, the city complies with all the required health indicators, so it is enabled to reopen the shops.

With this reopening, some 400,000 workers in 16,000 shops, 3,700 manufacturing companies and 32,000 construction sites are expected to return to the activity across the state. Obviously, resuming the economy requires strict monitoring of health protocols. For example, locals may sell to those who have placed the order before and not to those who have gone “walking”. While they will be blunt in complying with the rules, the City Council confirmed that it wanted to avoid the imposition of fines on those who do not adhere to those protocols.
