New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is holding a briefing and making an announcement Wednesday. He is speaking after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said indoor dining won’t be on the menu when the city reaches Phase 3 of reopening next week.
“We particularly see problems revolving around people going back to bars and restaurants indoors. Indoors is the problem more and more. The science is showing it more and more,” he said Wednesday, CBS New York reports. “So I want to make very clear: We cannot go ahead at this point in time with indoor dining in New York City.”
