When the pandemic started, one of the earliest and broadest measures the City took to protect public health was mandating the closure of thousands of small businesses. Before we had vaccines and before we knew the efficacy of masking, physical distance was the bluntest and best instrument we had to use, and we used it – sacrificing livelihoods to save lives.

One of the countless things the pandemic has upended in our lives is our sense of safety and belonging. Being together with family, with friends, with neighbors – the very things that are central to our sense of community and comfort – were suddenly made dangerous.

As the COVID-19 Delta variant surges, we see social economic disparities continue to widen. As our economy and society are reopening, the ability to continue working remotely, being able to travel safely and getting back to “normal” is a privilege that is still not available to many working families.

A year ago, in my “New Start” plan, I outlined a plan for COVID recovery and my commitment to working families, tenants, and small businesses. I’m happy that through this year’s budget, we are delivering on our promises and all of my colleagues are committed to making sure that our recovery does not leave anyone behind.

As we emerge from the pandemic, we’re stepping into a neighborhood, City and world that look different. The pandemic has revealed and exacerbated long-standing inequities, forced us all to adapt to survive, and perhaps forever shifted our understanding of what’s essential, what’s possible, and how deeply our health and wellness are connected to our neighbors.
