BREAKING NEWS: New York City is on Track to Enter Phase 3 Reopening on July 6 Easing More Restrictions

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today that New York City is on track to enter Phase 3 reopening which would allow for more easing of social distancing regulations as COVID-19 health metrics continue to drop.

Under Phase 3, restaurants will be allowed indoor dining on a limited capacity. Under the third phase, eateries will only be allowed inside dining at 50% capacity, with tables and people kept at 6 feet apart and everyone must wear masks inside.

Also allowed under phase 3 are personal care services like tattoo and massage parlors, spas, and nail salons. Beyond that not much else will open.

The Mayor also said that phase 3 will also allow the reopening of outdoor recreational areas like basketball, tennis, handball, and volleyball courts. Bocce courts will also reopen and even dog runs.
