The latest milestone in New York City’s recovery during the COVID-19 pandemic begins today, Monday, July 6, with Phase 3 of reopening. But unlike the previous two phases, the atmosphere for this latest stage in bringing the five boroughs back into high gear is one of trepidation.
Phase 3 brings the return of personal care businesses such as nail salons, massage parlors, spas, cosmetic surgery and tanning salons. Those looking to get a well-deserved mani-pedi, full-body rubdown or new ink after months of quarantine should get an appointment in advance, wear a mask and prepare to encounter a socially distant environment when they visit.
