New York City is entering phase four of reopening today, but it's a slightly different phase four than other parts of New York state experienced.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced last week that indoor dining would not be allowed to resume in phase four since it's considered a "high risk" activity.
In other parts of the state, indoor dining was allowed to resume in phase three.
De Blasio also announced that museums will also be “still closed for now." But shopping malls are included in phase four for areas of the state outside of New York City, according to state guidelines.
So here's a look at what will open in New York City's phase four, according to the mayor:
- Low-risk outdoor entertainment activities, including things like botanical gardens and zoos, can reopen at a reduced capacity of 33%.
- Production of movies and TV shows can proceed.
- Sports can come back but without audiences.
