New York Stock Exchange set to reopen trading floor today

26th May 2020

The reopening follows a two-month closure.

As New York City reels from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic – registering some 200,000 cases and more than 20,000 deaths – the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is expected to reopen today, following a two-month closure. 

Upon reopening, the NYSE will be subject to new measures, with just a quarter of the regular number of traders allowed to return, and in so doing, they will be asked to avoid public transport, wear masks and adhere to strict social distancing measures. 

Traders will also be temperature screened upon entry, and prior to returning, will be required to sign a liability waiver that prevents legal action against the NYSE should they contract the virus at the exchange.

The new regulations also include a visitor ban, meaning that the NYSE's high-profile opening bell events and stock market debut celebrations will be put on hold for the foreseeable future.
