New York City plans to be "fully open" on July 1 after more than a year of coronavirus-induced closures and capacity restrictions, Mayor Bill de Blasio said during a news conference on Thursday, explaining what exactly that would mean for residents.
"It means so many jobs get to come back and soon. It means that the things that make New York City special will be clearer than ever this summer. This is going to be the summer of New York City," said de Blasio.
The mayor said his optimism on the city’s goal of returning to normal reflected the success of a massive drive to get New Yorkers vaccinated. He said 6.3 million doses of vaccine have been administered in the city of some 8.3 million residents.
