ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10/WSYR-TV) — Governor Andrew Cuomo Sunday announced that New York City will enter Phase Three of reopening on Monday, but indoor dining will not reopen there.
The governor also updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
New York City is a crowded, dense urban area and, until recently, was the global epicenter of the COVID-19 crisis. Out of an abundance of caution and after seeing other states’ experiences with indoor dining, we will wait to reopen it as the city moves to Phase Three tomorrow. As we end this holiday weekend, I urge everyone to be New York Tough: wear a mask, socially distance, use hand sanitizer and continue the smart practices that have made our state a national leader in combating this virus. I also remind local governments of their duty to enforce the standards that have made NY’s reopening safe and successful.Governor Andrew Cuomo
