NEW YORK (AP) - Restaurants in New York City can increase their indoor dining to 75% of capacity starting May 7, in line with the rest of the state.
The announcement Friday from Gov. Andrew Cuomo is one of a number of moves concerning restaurants and pandemic regulations this week, including one repealing a requirement for food to be sold with alcoholic beverages at bars and restaurants.
Cuomo says personal services including hair salons and barber shops can expand to 75% capacity starting May 7 as well.
Gyms in New York City can go to 50% capacity starting May 15.
