Message from State Senator Alessandra Biaggi
As New York State experiences a surge in COVID cases and hospitalizations, today Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced new restrictions that will go into effect on Friday, November 13th, at 10PM.
The new restrictions include:
• Bars, restaurants, and any establishment with a state liquor license will be required to close in-person service from 10PM to 5AM daily. Restaurants can continue to provide food-only pick-up or delivery after 10PM, but will not be permitted to serve alcohol to go.
• Gyms and fitness centers must close daily from 10PM to 5AM.
• Indoor and outdoor gatherings at private residences must be limited to no more than 10 people.
According to the Governor’s office, local governments will be responsible for enforcing these new restrictions.
While I urge you to remain calm, it is important to remember that the pandemic is not over yet – our communities must stay vigilant and continue to take the necessary precautions to keep flattening the curve. This includes wearing a mask outside of your home, maintaining six feet apart from others, frequently washing your hands, staying home if you are sick, and following New York State travel and quarantine guidelines.
I also encourage you to keep utilizing the free COVID diagnostic and antibody testing sites in District 34, which can be located using this map.
