New York City is on tack to begin phase two of reopening on Monday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a news conference.
The city is meeting its thresholds for reopening, and will have been in phase one for 14 days by Monday, Cuomo said at a news conference
"We don't change the rules for New York City," Cuomo said of the metric thresholds.
Here's what phase two means: Phase two allows for a wider range of businesses to continue to reopen under Covid-19 guidelines, including retail businesses and offices, according to the state's reopening website.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced that once the city enters phase two, restaurants will be able to open for outdoor seating, and convert parking spaces into seating areas.
Malls, gyms, movie theaters and casinos will remain closed in phase two.
