New York City will finally reopen Monday, but it comes nearly three months after the shutdown and the death of more that 20,000 New Yorkers — about 6,500 of whom are from Queens.

The city will enter phase one of reopening Monday, with construction, agriculture, hunting, manufacturing and wholesale trade employees returning to work — an estimated 400,000 people.

The virus has killed 6,326 Queens residents and 21,782 New York City residents as of Friday, according to Health Department data.
