July 1 eyed as date of full reopening for New York City, de Blasio says

New York City is on track to fully reopen from the COVID-19 pandemic on July 1, Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a nationally televised interview Thursday morning.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” de Blasio said all the slowing spread of the virus, combined with the continued number of vaccinations going on across the city, give him the optimism that the city will be able to fully reopen on the first day of July.
