 The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) has partially reopened its iconic trading floor after a two-month closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo rang the opening bell with NYSE President Stacey Cunningham on Tuesday.
 
Safety measures such as wearing masks and physical distancing are required in the Exchange. People entering the building must have their temperature taken and fill in a questionnaire regarding their health conditions.
The partial reopening is set to bring back only about 80 floor brokers or about 25 percent of the trading floor population.
 
The reopening of the trading floor came at a time when COVID-19 infections in New York continue to trend down.
 
According to Johns Hopkins University, the United States has reported over 1.68 million COVID-19 cases and over 98,900 deaths by Tuesday, still the worst-hit in the world.
