New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city is within parameters regarding its Covid-19 data to proceed as planned with their phase one reopening on Monday.
The statewide thresholds to enter phase one include:
- Having less than 200 people admitted to hospitals per day
- Having under 375 intensive care unit patients across the city
- Having less than 15% of city residents testing positive for Covid-19
As of Sunday, NYC hospitals have admitted 72 people due to Covid-19, 324 people remain in ICUs, and 4% of the city is currently testing positive for Covid-19, de Blasio said.
“That is what you’ve achieved together, that’s another way we’re going to move forward in this city,” de Blasio said.
