Companies with licenses to sell liquor must close indoor and outdoor dining at night at 10 PM, starting Friday
New York restaurants and bars with licenses to sell liquor will have to adhere to a new nighttime curfew, Andrew Cuomo announced today, as the state and region grapple with a growing spike in COVID-19 cases
Restaurants and bars across the state have been ordered to close indoor and outdoor dining at night at 10 p.m. starting Friday, according to the governor’s office. Takeout and deliveries after 10 a.m. are still permitted, but only for food orders and alcohol orders that are made. Eating out and delivering after 10 a.m. would be prohibited, per the governor’s recent instructions Previously, restaurants in New York City were mandated to close outdoor dining at 11 a.m. and eat indoors at 12 a.m.
Cuomo called on local governments to play a greater role in terms of enforcement, and specifically called on the New York Police to lead enforcement efforts in New York City, saying that the sheriff’s office alone would not be able to carry out the work
During a press conference to announce the new regulation, Cuomo said that the move comes in response to the rise in COVID-19 cases and the curfew imposed in neighboring countries “We don’t want people from neighboring countries to close at 10 pm,” Cuomo said
New Jersey put in place a 10-am curfew for indoor dining in restaurants and bars that comes into effect on November 12, while Connecticut restaurants and bars operate under 10 hours. A curfew for everything but fast food and delivery has been underway since November 5. For a stay-at-home counseling starting November 6, restaurants and bars in the state are currently restricted for takeout and delivery – for food only – after 9:30 pm every night
The number of reported COVID-19 cases continues to rise in the United States In New York, the daily COVID-19 positive rate was 29 percent as of Wednesday, including city and state lockdown areas. Additional restrictions exist in parts of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten. Island, where the state has designated these territories to be part of small groups.
This is a growing story and Eater updates it with more information as it becomes available.
