In just a couple of weeks, the state will take its biggest step yet towards fully recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Governor Cuomo said yesterday that capacity limits on businesses such as bars, restaurants, salons and gyms are going to be lifted May 19th. However, social distancing guidelines are remaining in place, meaning people will have to stay at least six-feet apart. But, the state will change that regulation should the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention update its recommendations.
