Indoor Dining in NYC can Expand to 35% Capacity Beginning February 26 Says Governor

During his press conference today, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo stated that indoor dining for NYC restaurants can expand to 35% capacity (which is 10 more than its present allowance) starting next Friday.

“Reopening New York City, restaurants are now 25 percent,” said the Governor. “They are 50 percent statewide. They’re 50 percent in Connecticut. They’re 50 percent on Long Island. New York City was closed. New York City is now 25 percent. In one week we will go to 35 percent in New York City restaurants which is consistent with New Jersey. What’s happening now is people in New York City, Staten Island, Manhattan, are going to New Jersey to those restaurants. So it’s not really accomplishing a purpose.”

“So New York City restaurants will go to 35 percent next Friday. That will be consistent with New Jersey. Connecticut is still 50, Long Island is still 50, we understand that, but we’re responding to the data. Obviously we’re more sensitive to New York City because of the density, the concentration, the history. But we’re headed in the right direction. We’re making progress. The numbers continue to be good, we’ll continue to make progress.”
