City could consider reopening nonessential businesses in
June if coronavirus indicators continue to decrease: Mayor
BY ALEJANDRA O'CONNELL-DOMENECH
The city could consider reopening some nonessential
businesses June if the number of novel
coronavirus indicators continue to decrease,
Mayor Bill de Blasio said on May 11.
“We have our daily indicators. The state has
their daily indicators. We are all working together.
They’re all valuable measures — by both sets of
measures, we’re clearly not ready yet,” said Mayor
Bill de Blasio during his daily coronavirus press
During the conferences, Mayor de Blasio updates
the city on three numbers that his administration
is using to track the progress of the novel
coronavirus. The number of people admitted to
the hospital suspected of contracting the virus
dropped from 69 on May 8 to 55 on May 9, according
to the mayor’s office.
The number of people testing positive for the
virus also dropped from 17 percent on May 8 to 13
percent on May 9, and people currently in an intensive
care unit suffering from suspected novel
coronavirus complications slid from 540 to 537 on
those same dates, according to the mayor.
During his coronavirus press conferences, de
Blasio has repeatedly said decreases in those three
categories need to be sustained for 10 days and
two weeks before the city would consider easing
up on social distancing measures or reopening

“I think it’s fair to say that June is when we’re
potentially going to be able to make some real
changes, if we can continue our progress,” said
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s March-issued New
York On PAUSE Order was set to expire on May 15,
but on Sunday the Governor issued an executive
order extending the legal authority of the shelterin
place order until June 6.
