NYSE to Reopen Tuesday with Traders in Masks


The New York Stock Exchange will reopen Tuesday with masked traders and no visitors to ring the Opening Bell. 

Only 25% of the usual amount of traders will return to the trading floor after the 2-month closure.

And there will be mitigation measures in place to help with social distancing. Traders must avoid taking public transportation to work and wear masks on the floor. There will be Plexiglas barriers to help keep people 6 ft apart and a ban on visitors and media broadcasts. 

Floor traders will have to undergo temperature checks upon entering the building. Blue markings on the sidewalk will help space out people waiting in line to enter. Once inside, there is to be no hand shaking or other physical contact. To ensure traders keep their masks on at all times, there is no eating on the floor. There will be designated places to eat lunch at the cafeteria. 

Traders choosing to return must sign a liability waiver that prevents them from suing the NYSE if they get infected at the exchange, the newspaper reports. 

Have a healthy week, Keep the Faith!
