What is the full form of NYC

New York wants "full reopening" in July

The US metropolis of New York, which has been hard hit by the pandemic, is aiming for a "complete reopening" by July 1st. Bars, restaurants, shops, fitness clubs, cinemas and museums could then be 100 percent open again, said Mayor Bill de Blasio yesterday. “We can now see the light at the end of the tunnel,” said de Blasio. "It's going to be a fantastic summer."

Clarification with state open

However, the mayor did not provide any information about which security precautions could also apply after July 1. Many restrictions have been imposed by New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Both politicians belong to the Democratic Party, but have a difficult relationship with one another. When asked, De Blasio admitted that he had not yet spoken to Cuomo about his plans for a “complete reopening”. Most of the world-famous theaters on Broadway are also not expected to open until September.

"Vaccination is the key"

De Blasio emphasized that further progress in the vaccination campaign was necessary in the coming weeks. “Getting everyone vaccinated is the key.” 6.4 million vaccine doses have already been administered in the metropolis. Around 2.4 of the 8.5 million New Yorkers are vaccinated. By the end of June there should be five million New Yorkers. As in other parts of the country, however, the pace of vaccinations has recently decreased.
