NYC On Track For Partial Reopening By Mid-June

NBC New York reports:

New York City and Long Island have each met four of the seven reopening metrics. Both regions have yet to identify and train their complete contact tracing armies; they’re required to have at least 30 tracers for every 100,000 residents.

Long Island continues to struggle on the hospital death rate metric, while New York City has yet to make the hospital and ICU beds available that Cuomo says it needs to have to ensure it can handle a potential viral resurgence.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has said the city is on track to overcome its remaining roadblocks to reopening by early-to-mid June; Cuomo’s office agrees. Parts of the city are already starting to spring back to life, perhaps too quickly for some.
