Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that all of New York City’s cultural and entertainment venues, such as Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall and Broadway theaters, will reopen at low capacity on April 2.
According to Cuomo, such venues could reopen at 33 percent capacity – up to 100 people indoors and up to 200 people outdoors. He added that if administratorsi decide to require proof of negative tests for COVID-19 from visitors, they can allow up to 150 people indoors and up to 500 outdoors.
“New Yorkers have done a great job fighting COVID-19, and we are gradually loosening the restrictions as their numbers decrease and public health improves. Clearly, if we are vigilant, we will reach the light at the end of the tunnel,” Cuomo said.
The governor warned that despite weak restrictions, the public must remain vigilant and continue to wash their hands, wear masks and distance themselves from others.
Cuomo also announced that beginning March 22, up to 25 people can meet outdoors.
