9/11 Memorial reopens after closing amid COVID-19 outbreak

The iconic 9/11 Memorial opened to family members of victims, first responders and frontline workers Saturday after being closed for nearly three months because of COVID-19.

The Memorial, which will now require masks and social distancing for visitors and employees, opens to the general public July 5, ending the temporary closure since early March. The Museum remains closed for now.

American flags were placed around the Survivor Tree to remember 9/11 survivors who died of COVID-19.

Mike Bloomberg, chairman of the Memorial and Museum, was on hand, along with Mayor Bill de Blasio, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and Sen. Chuck Schumer.
