Long Island on track to enter Phase 2 of reopening Wednesday
Officials say Long Island is set to enter Phase 2 of reopening on Wednesday.
Officials say one major focus in that phase is restaurants, as outdoor dining will now be allowed with social distancing, and other health measures in place.
Phase 2 will also allow hair salons and barbershops to open with strict guidelines. Limited in-store retail will be permitted as well.
Other businesses like offices, real estate, auto dealerships, and commercial building management are set to get the green light to reopen with strict social distancing and capacity rules.
Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio says on Monday, 3,200 construction sites are eligible to open as the city moves into Phase 1.
