"Latest on the welcome thank you Richard so New York City I mean the site of another weekend of massive protests against police brutality in the name of George Floyd that combined with the pandemic there I mean it is just been a lot explain what's gonna happen today we're expecting to see more new Yorkers to leave their homes to go to work starting today this is the first phase of New York city's economic re opening and like you said this is a really major moment for city that's been faced with two major crises right now yeah it's been the national epicenter of this pandemic and over the past week these gatherings of nonviolent protesters have really highlighted longstanding issues with policing and racial injustice in the city you know there seems to be some momentum building for the protesters especially those calling for the defunding of the New York City police department yesterday mayor bill de Blasio after he announced the end of nightly curfews a day earlier than expected the mayor also said that for upcoming negotiations with the city's budget city officials intend to redirect some funding for the police to use programs and social services in communities of color so there are a lot of moving pieces right now in New York so let's talk about the first phase of new York's re opening what kinds of businesses are gonna be allowed to open their doors today yeah only some industries that seem local officials think in social distance more easily that includes retail manufacturing and construction it's gonna be a real test to see if and how the city can come back to life you know it's the largest most densely populated city in the country and it just emptied out after the outbreak and now the numbers of new cover cases in hospitalizations because of governing team have dropped a lot of workers small business owners who cannot work from home they've been really anxious to make money again and put food on the table pay their bills so it's one thing to say okay we're gonna do this phased reopening and now hundreds of thousands of people can go back to work but I mean that's it's sort of dangerous isn't it just just getting to work there all these precautions with people's commutes there are a lot of risks involved and do you know big thing here in New York is a course public transit which is the lifeblood of the city especially the subway and the number of riders since the outbreak is really plummeted and some essential workers have not had a choice over these past few months and but many people have been avoiding the subway ends question see what they will do now that the city's re opening new Yorkers have to wear face coverings when they're riding the subway but it's very hard if not impossible social distance and employers hope to stagger workshops we'll see if that works out I talked to one small business owner Josie will guard Tayshaun just women's boutique calls always and brook lane at the transition to more online ordering but she told me she's not opening her store anytime soon let's listen which is that I don't think it's worth it you know this government is just more concerned about the economics the money I'd rather than people's health in the city Fishel said they are trying to keep the city safe you know one thing to keep in mind the going back to the protest we're not sure how those gatherings may increase the spread the virus and so the city is urging everyone to get tested so one thing I haven't heard you mention is is the schools right there of course of course closed in places in states around the country where does that leave parents and guardians who have to go back to work now I talked to one small business earlier no at least of BG LH market place she's a single mother of three she's very concerned this push to reopen and I feel like no one is really talking about childcare because I just kind of like what do you expect me to do with my kids and I have been asking around and no one has an answer and I just find that very very confusing because it's the last big piece of the puzzle if for no child care centers and see your friends social workers only for for parents like no at least it's a real big problem right now right NPR's Hansi lo Juan from New York City thank you you're welcome now some people want to join the nationwide protests against racism and police brutality but the
