New York City entered reopening phase 1 of 4 today. Here’s what will change in each phase

The long pause is over.

After nearly three months in lockdown, New York City officially entered its first phase of reopening—a small but important step toward some semblance of normalcy.

As many as 400,000 New Yorkers may come back to work today. Trains and buses will run more often, construction sites will come alive and shops can start curbside pickup. It’s a marked shift for the world’s financial capital, which has been ravaged by the coronavirus. With over 20,000 confirmed and probable fatalities, the city’s death toll surpasses all but six countries.

Of course, it’s still too soon to declare victory.
