The New York Giants reopened their East Rutherford, New Jersey facilities on Wednesday with a small group of employees returning, marking the end to a near three-month shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Art Stapleton of USA TODAY Network reports that those who returned are from the business, building operations and football operations departments, including co-owner John Mara and general manager Dave Gettleman.

A small group of employees in the business, building operations and football operations departments returned to work at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center under guidelines established by local and state authorities and the NFL, a source told NorthJersey.com and USA TODAY Network.

The numbers will increase over the next couple weeks, but for the most part, the Giants anticipate that those who can continue to work from home will.

New Jersey governor Phil Murphy announced last week that area sports teams were permitted to reopen and return to their facilities, but the Giants took a slow approach to ensure the safety of their personnel.

While the number of employees in the building will increase over the coming weeks, the NFL will not permit the return of their coaches or any healthy players until all 32 teams are afforded that same luxury. As things sit, several states remain locked down as a result of COVID-19.

The Giants were initially slated to hold minicamp this month, but that is unlikely to happen. Rather, do not expect the full team to resume activities in East Rutherford until training camp gets underway at the end of July.
