Due to increasing cases of COVID-19 throughout the State of New York, on November 12, 2020, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed Executive Order No. 202.74. This Order places new restrictions on bars, restaurants, gyms, and residential gatherings throughout the State.
Beginning Friday, November 13, 2020 at 10:00 p.m., bars, restaurants, gyms/fitness centers, and any establishment licensed by the State Liquor Authority will be required to close from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. daily. Restaurants may continue to provide curbside, food-only pickup or delivery after 10:00 p.m. Restaurants may not serve alcohol to go.
The Executive Order also limits non-essential indoor and outdoor gatherings at private residences to no more than 10 people provided that social distancing, face covering, and cleaning and disinfection protocols, as required by the New York State Department of Health, are adhered to. This restriction also takes effect on Friday, November 13, 2020 at 10:00 p.m.
When announcing the new restrictions, Governor Cuomo stated that such restrictions are being implemented due to the recent prevalence of COVID spread resulting from small indoor gatherings including Halloween parties.
