The Wall Street Journal reports:
The New York Stock Exchange is set to reopen its famed trading floor Tuesday, but it won’t be going back to normal.
Only one-quarter of the NYSE’s usual population of traders will be back when the floor resumes business after a two-month closure prompted by the coronavirus pandemic. Traders who return must wear masks, avoid taking public transportation and follow tough social-distancing rules, with newly erected Plexiglas barriers to help them stay apart.
A visitor ban means splashy bell-ringings and celebrations to mark initial public offerings won’t be happening anytime soon. To return to their jobs, floor traders must sign a liability waiver that prevents them from suing the NYSE if they get infected at the exchange.
