The trading floor will operate with reduced headcount and additional safety precautions to accommodate health-focused considerations. Because member firms will operate with adjusted staffing levels, customers are encouraged to discuss specific capabilities with their Floor Brokers in advance of the partial reopening.
Upon returning, NYSE trading floor personnel will be required to follow enhanced safety protocols, which include, but are not limited to, compliance with the public health orders of the City and State of New York. Members seeking admittance to the floor should review NYSE IM-20-03 and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
