Tomorrow — Monday, June 22 — all of New York City will enter Phase 2 of re-opening from the restrictions imposed to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Time Out NY has an excellent summary of what this will entail. Briefly: (1) in addition to take out and delivery, restaurants may offer outdoor dining; (2) barber shops and hair salons may open, with restrictions that include no walk-ins; (3) customers may now enter retail stores to shop, again with restrictions; (4) offices for professional, administrative, information technology, and real estate services may re-open; and (5) playgrounds will be open, with parent monitors sought to enforce social distancing (and good luck to them). Masks continue to be required, and social distancing rules remain in effect.
Alternate side of the street parking rules were to go back into effect Monday, June 22, but it has just been announced that the suspension will continue through next Sunday, June 28.
