COVID-19: NYC Quote of the Day 2020-07-17

Friday, July 17, 2020, NYC Mayor de Blasio - Outdoors Activities Open With Phase Four on Monday

We are moving forward with Phase Four on Monday. I can give you the broad outlines of what we've talked about with the State and where we agree that we can move forward safely. Let's focus first on outdoors. We're going to restart the low risk outdoor arts and entertainment activities. This means things like botanical gardens and zoos, for example. They can reopen, but at 33 percent capacity. Production of movies, TV shows, that can proceed. Sports but, without audiences. This has been announced previously, but to emphasize, that is part of Phase Four as well. We'll get to watch it on television.

Indoors is where we have concerns. Some will not resume in Phase Four, certainly not right away. And that continues to be, first of all, indoor dining. We've said that's not happening. That continues to not happen. Museums, not yet. Malls, not yet. Still closed for now.
