Restaurants in New York City are gearing up to open their doors again.
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced via Twitter yesterday (September 9). He said indoor dining can resume on September 30 at 25 percent capacity.
There will be strict rules in place, like patrons getting their temperature checked before they go in, no bar service, one member of each family has to give their information for contact tracing if need be, no service after midnight, masks must be worn when not eating, and always maintain six feet social distance.

In the tristate last week, New Jersey resumed with indoor dining, with similar rules like NYC, restaurants can open with 25% capacity. Gov. Phil Murphy said if COVID-19 spikes back up, then he will close the doors. In Connecticut, indoor dining resumed sometime in August. Restaurants are allowed to operate at 50 percent capacity and will consider raising the limit if the infection rate stays down.
