Virtual Town Hall: COVID-19 and the Path to Re-Opening New York City

Video Archive


Dear Neighbors:

Thank you to those who attended our Virtual Town Hall yesterday to discuss the reopening of New York City and the steps that must be taken to ensure that we revitalize our economy while also safeguarding our public health.

For those of you who were unable to attend, I strongly encourage you to watch the video of the event. There was a lot of pertinent information, not only regarding what the city is doing to prepare for re-opening, but also of steps each of us must take to ensure our safety and well being during this process.
