Gov. Andrew Cuomo has given the go-ahead to reopen marinas and boatyards in New York.
The governor announced the decision in a joint statement along with the governors of Connecticut and New Jersey.
Marinas will be open for personal use only, and as long as strict social distancing and sanitizing protocols are followed.
Chartered watercraft services like fishing boats and boat rentals will not be allowed.
Restaurants that operate at marinas can reopen – but, like all restaurants, will be restricted to takeout and delivery service only.
The governors said that it was important for them to make the decision together so that the entire tri-state area followed the same set of guidelines.
Rep. Lee Zeldin, a member of the White House Task Force on Reopening the Economy, says he’s optimistic but warns that Long Island’s recovery might be slower than other less hard-hit parts of the nation.

“We have to be sure we don’t cause another outbreak. That is something we don’t ever want to have to revisit,” he says.
