Mark May 19 on your calendar. Gov. Cuomo says that's when there will be a "major reopening" of New York state.

The governor says on May 19, most capacity restrictions will end in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. This includes retail, food services, gyms, amusement and family entertainment, hair salons, offices and more.

The NYC subways will also resume 24-hour service on May 17.

The governor says this will be regionally coordinated.

Cuomo says if positivity numbers continue to decline at the current rate, and if vaccination numbers continue to climb at their current rate, he envisions total reopening in about two months.
