New restrictions on NY bars, restaurants, gyms as state sees coronavirus surge

Even without the early closing time, restaurateurs have complained that the restrictions make it hard to stay in business.

Cuomo said indoor parties are another "great spreader" of COVID-19, as identified by state contact tracers.

"COVID is getting worse by the day".

The new restrictions will have to be enforced by local governments, including by the police in New York City, Mr Cuomo said.

Cuomo also announced that gyms and businesses serving alcohol must close by 10 p.m. effective Friday.

Microsoft took this decision for employees working from Home
The employees are even allowed to choose there working hours, and no approval will be needed for the same from the managers. The outlier among tech giants was Apple, which asked employees to start returning to the office in June.

When it comes to bars and restaurants in NY, the rule applies to SLA-licensed establishments, which also may include bowling alleys.

Cuomo also reported that the statewide percent positivity rate, including what the state calls "micro cluster zones", is 2.9 percent, while it is 2.5 percent without these micro cluster zones. The new 10pm closure time applies to both indoor and outdoor dining. The last time cases topped 3,000 was on April 27. Pennsylvania is at 15 percent.

But Mr Cuomo said further restrictions, including limiting restaurants to opening at 25% capacity across the state, may be necessary if Covid-19 numbers continue to rise. This is in line with nearby states, such as New Jersey, which has put a similar cap in place. Portchester, which is on the CT border, became a yellow zone earlier this week, but it will now increase to an orange zone.

Testing data released Wednesday indicated a 2.93% positivity rate statewide. The positivity rate of only the micro-cluster zones was 4.9 percent.
