Andrew Cuomo Declares New Curfew Amid COVID-19 Surge
COVID-19 has been an issue since the end of December 2019. With the pandemic spreading across the world, getting back to normal becomes more of a fleeting thought. So much so that New York introduced a new nationwide curfew from 10 p.m.
On Wednesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that places like gyms will have to close their doors at the appointed time.
He wrote: “New York follows science. We know that indoor gatherings and parties are a major source of the spread of COVID. To slow the spread, NYS will limit indoor gatherings in private homes to 10 people. This limit comes into effect on Friday at 10 p.m. “
Cuomo continued, “NYS is taking action to stop the spread in response to rising COVID numbers. Any facility with a state license for liquor, including bars and restaurants, must close at 10 p.m. The gyms must also close at 10 p.m. These new statewide rules will go into effect on Friday 10pm. “
Most recently, Andrew Cuomo made it clear that he is not responsible for COVID-19. Cuomo stated, “We have tremendous losses from COVID, we are not responsible for them. I am not responsible. I do not accept the premise that New York State or New York City should pay. We didn’t do anything wrong. “
As you may know, New York was once the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, with over 23,000 deaths. There have been over 7 million cases of the virus in the US and over 33 million cases worldwide.
California is reportedly close to 1 million cases. As previously reported, Texas is the only other state to have hit this number of cases.
