The city estimated that ~16k nonessential retail businesses will reopen, along with 3.7k manufacturers.
The city tries to get back to business after becoming the epicenter of the US coronavirus outbreak, suffering a surge that killed more than 500 people a day at its early-to-mid-April peak.
Up to 400,000 construction, retail, and other manufacturing workers could begin their return on Monday in Phase 1 of the reopening, The New York Times estimates , as most of the United States city remains on "PAUSE" (Gov. Andrew Cuomo's name for New York's version of shelter-in-place orders, which have been in effect since March).
"We are back ... we are back", New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during his daily COVID-19 briefing on Monday in New York City.
As protests over Floyd's killing intensified in the last few weeks, a nightly curfew was imposed in New York City for nearly the whole of last week.de Blasio announced that the curfew will end as the law and order situation improved. Some have called for a quicker reopening, noting that protests now unfolding against racism and police brutality have gathered thousands of demonstrators who are not social distancing.
"The reopening of the economy is a valve - we said we were going to open the valve incrementally and then watch the metrics, and our metrics today are all very good so we're going to open the valve more than we originally anticipated", said Cuomo. Cuomo urged protesters to get tested for the coronavirus as soon as possible. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which runs services in New York City as well as commuter trains into its suburbs, says it's still only serving "essential" workers.
Cuomo also announced Sunday that he will issue an executive order extending the deadline for school districts to receive school budget ballots.

It's a shift that some city officials worry may have lasting consequences in what has been a subway-centered city. "This is about reopening to a new normal - a safer normal".
The governor had previously issued executive orders allowing NY voters to vote absentee in the June 23 primary elections, and to see that all registered voters in the state receive a postage-paid absentee ballot application in the mail. However, everyone must wear face coverings and follow social distancing floor markings.
"This is a triumphant moment for New Yorkers who have been fighting the disease", said Mayor Bill de Blasio. Stay smart. Look at facts around us.
"All eyes will be on NY this next couple of months", said Bowles, executive director of the Center for an Urban Future.
"Compared to where we've been, this is a big sigh of relief", he said. Enforcement agencies will perform random visits to make sure the reopened businesses are complying with the guidelines. "This government is just more concerned about the economics, the money, rather than people's health".
The novel coronavirus has hard-hit NY and the state's economic health has deteriorated, and it faces a hard and painful recovery without significant help from the federal government, according to the Voice of America (VOA).
"I think that's really unrealistic".
"I want to keep reminding people".
