Across the country, in New York and on Long Island, coronavirus cases are rising at alarming rates.
Due to the increase in numbers, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is issuing new restrictions, and warning he could take things even further.
Starting tomorrow any restaurant with a state liquor license has to close by 10 p.m. After 10 p.m., restaurants and bars can still offer take-out and delivery.
The state order includes gyms in addition to bars, restaurants and bowling alleys.
Also, parties at private residences can only be kept to 10 people, unless 10 people live there.
Gov. Cuomo said these restrictions are necessary for the state to stay ahead of coronavirus cases as they continue to go up, as well as hospitalizations and deaths.
New data has shown gyms, restaurants, bars and house parties are spots where the virus spreads the most.
“Losing money hurts, but money can be replaced. Losing a loved one hurts forever,” says Cuomo. The new restrictions take effect at 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13.
