Cuomo Issues Order To Allow Gatherings Of Ten Or Less

New York eases ban on meetings

According to the new executive order, social distancing, cleaning, and disinfecting protocols must be maintained.

The move comes after a previous order this week allowed similar-sized gatherings for Memorial Day or religious events.

New Yorkers will be able to convene in groups of 10 following a lawsuit against a Gov.

There are 21,000 beds throughout New York City's healthcare facility beds.

The forecast appeared less than ideal for the holiday weekend, however, with rain expected Saturday and clouds on Sunday.


While beaches elsewhere in the region will be open for swimming, Mayor Bill de Blasio has said swimming is not allowed at the city's beaches and may not be all summer. "I commend Governor Cuomo for recognizing the necessity to ensure viable assistance to these smaller enterprises and proprietors, as they restore and reestablish their livelihoods. People are not supposed to go to the beach to swim".

The main reason the mayor has cited for the swimming ban was to curb the spread of the virus by keeping people off public transportation. To preserve that trust fund, the federal government should take that obligation seriously as well as deal with all New Yorkers similarly as we look to the months in advance'.

Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi said the new order is in line with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which says meetings of up to 10 people are safe if people distance themselves socially.

The NYPD will no longer arrest you for not wearing a mask, and the city's in the process of giving out 7.5 million free face coverings to residents.

In addition to the city's reopening indicators, before New York City and regions across the state can reopen in phases, they must first meet seven state-mandated reopening metrics.
