New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that both the city and state indicators could be met in the first half of June — meaning some restrictions could begin to lift then.
“We have to get these indicators right, move down together for 10 to 14 days, we also have to meet the state indicators, but both of them right now could be met in the first half of June, that would be the right time then to lift some restrictions. But carefully, slowly, smartly," he said.
De Blasio alluded to a similar situation on CNN’s New Day.
The indicators have been moving “pretty damn well,” he said.
“We are getting in range now of hitting all our numbers in the first half of June,” he said, and if it’s “consistent, that’s when we take the first steps to open up more."
