While the numbers are trending down in New York (I just looked) I wouldn't say they're at a level that would warrant opening up.
Other than that, I don't know any of the details, like what restrictions would be enforced.
I know other states have gone back and forth with lockdowns depending on the trends. When the numbers go up, they go back into lockdown. Like a balancing act of trying to protect both health and businesses.
Personally, I think that's the wrong way to deal with the problem.
In my opinion, had we effectively financially protected businesses, there wouldn't be all this open, close, open, close nonsense. Both businesses and public health could have been protected, and there would have been fewer deaths, and fewer businesses going under.
Of course that would have required money that no one was willing to spend up front. Now they're losing it and more in other ways.
