NYC Indoor Dining Expands to 75% Capacity

New York City indoor dining will expand to 75% capacity beginning Friday, May 7. This brings the city in line with the rest of New York State.

Additionally, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday that hair salons, barber shops and other personal care services will expand to 75% capacity beginning May 7. New York City gyms and fitness centers will expand to 50% capacity beginning May 15.

Cuomo also announced that he would rescind the executive order establishing the micro-cluster zone strategy in light of New York State’s progress against the COVID-19 pandemic. Applicable state public health guidance must still be followed for all industries.

“After a long and incredibly difficult fight, New York State is winning the war against COVID-19, and that means it’s time to loosen some restrictions put in place to protect the public health and help our local businesses,” Cuomo said.
