Nassau County Executive Laura Curran confirmed the county is on track to start Phase Two next Wednesday, with “full retail, hair salons and barber shops” expected to open up for business, she said. Administrative and office-type jobs, real estate, and outdoor dining are expected to resume as well.
“We really do need to get this economy back, we need to get people back to work, and we need to reopen our society, we’re getting there,” Curran said.
New York State has been managing its reopening by phases and regions according to health and preparedness metrics tracked on a daily basis. Long Island has been in Phase One for more than a week, seeing a return of its construction, manufacturing, wholesale trade, agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting as well as retail for curbside, pickup and delivery.
In the second phase, Long Island and other regions will be able to bring back real estate, in-store retail, office work, vehicle sales, leases and rentals, hair salons and barbershops and outdoor food services.
New York City is still on track to enter Phase One of reopening on Monday, Cuomo said. He said Westchester, Rockland and the Hudson Valley will enter Phase Two on Tuesday, while Nassau and Suffolk counties are on track to do so Wednesday….
