NY: Moving Forward

With the pandemic still ravaging lives everywhere the state of New York is hoping to move forward thanks to the vaccine and a hopeful light at the end of what has been a very long tunnel.  According to Governor Andrew Cuomo, there is a need for substantially more vaccines in the region. He is disappointed by the federal government not providing an adequate level of production. Still with the hopeful construction of the mass vaccination site at Yankee Stadium, more vaccines will follow.

Since the spike in cases that came from holiday gatherings has now past its peak, there has been more leniency in lifting restrictions on restaurants, places of worship etc.  Yet there still needs to be extra caution taken because of the density of the population of NYC. It is hoped that there will be an allowance for restaurants – in the very near future – to be able to operate at 25 percent.

Personal care and retail stores can operate at 50 percent; fitness centers at 33 percent.
