Some 80,000 members of New York City’s municipal workforce will return to their offices in May, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday.

Those employees, who have been working remotely since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, are slated to return May 3, Hizzoner said during a City Hall press briefing.

“Our city workforce is going to be coming back,” de Blasio said, explaining that those city workers make up “folks who are already not working in front-line positions, which is the vast majority of our city workers.”

There will be “strict safety measures in place” as those employees return to the office, he added. Though there will be no COVID-19 vaccine mandate, face masks will be required in settings where social distancing is not possible.

“We’re going to use all of the tools that we have learned about — distancing, about ventilation, the right way to lay out workspaces,” de Blasio said.

“We’re going to make it safe, but we need our city workers back in their offices where they can do the most to help their fellow New Yorkers.”

There are more than 300,000 municipal workers in the Big Apple in total.
