New York City is still on track to reopen and begin phase one on Monday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
The city will provide 2 million free face covering for employees through Monday, the mayor said. City partners will distribute face coverings directly to businesses or serve as pickup hubs.
The city will also open a dedicated business restart hotline on Friday to help businesses with questions about reopening.
“Phase one is going to go on, and we will build from there,” de Blasio said.
Phase two could begin as early as July, De Blasio said.
Under phase one of New York’s reopening plans, retail can reopen for pickup orders and some industries, such as construction and agriculture, can resume operations.
Under phase two, restaurants will open for limited outdoor seating, the mayor said.
