COVID-19 has been an issue since late December of 2019. As the pandemic has made its way across the entire world, getting back to normal becomes more a fleeting thought. So much so that New York has added a new state-wide curfew of 10 p.m.
On Wednesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that places like gyms must close their doors at the designated time, adhering to the curfew.
He wrote, “New York follows the science. We know indoor gatherings and parties are a major source of COVID spread. To slow the spread, NYS will limit indoor gatherings at private residences to 10 people. This limit takes effect Friday at 10 p.m.”
Cuomo continued, “NYS is taking action to stop the spread in response to rising COVID numbers. Any establishment with a state liquor license, including bars and restaurants, must close at 10 p.m. Gyms must also close at 10 p.m. These new statewide rules will take effect Friday, 10 p.m.”
Most recently, Andrew Cuomo made it clear he was not responsible for COVID-19. Cuomo stated, “We have tremendous losses because of COVID, we’re not liable for them. I am not accepting liability. I’m not accepting 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 to date. The United States has experienced over 7 million cases caused by the virus, and over 33 million cases worldwide.
According to reports, California is on the verge of having 1 million cases. Texas, as previously reported, is the only other state to have already reached that amount of cases.
