The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) trading floors were re-opened on May 26, 2020. This comes following two months of closure due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The NYSE was one of many exchanges around the world that were forced to move their operations remotely following lockdown orders.
The exchange first started remote operations on March 23, 2020. According to Stacey Cunningham, President of the NYSE, this decision was also due to two individuals testing positive for the virus. Historically, the exchange has closed during World War 2 and in the aftermath of 9/11, but this marked the first time that the physical floors were shut down in favor of electronic activities.
Temperatures of all entrants to the floor will be checked daily, and the floor itself will undergo sanitization. Other spaces in the stock exchange will mostly remain unused, with workers continuing to work from home. These measures are to ensure as much social distancing and hygiene as possible.
