Cuomo says indoor dining in NYC to go to 75% starting May 7


Restaurants in New York City can increase their indoor dining to 75 percent of capacity starting May 7, in line with the rest of the state, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Friday.

The announcement is one of a number of moves concerning restaurants and pandemic regulations this week, including one repealing a requirement for food to be sold with alcoholic beverages at bars and restaurants.

Cuomo on Friday also said personal services including hair salons and barber shops could expand to 75 percent capacity starting May 7 as well. Gyms in New York City can go to 50 percent capacity starting May 15.

Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday both spoke on Thursday about wanting to see COVID restrictions lifted in the next couple of months.
