New York City is taking precautionary steps to ensure the safety of its residents.

Earlier today, Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced the “Cluster Action Plan.” Under this plan, nonessential businesses will be closed in particular areas of Brooklyn and Queens due to the high rates of COVID-19. Along with those businesses, restaurants will go back to take-out only, schools will be closing, and there will be limited mass gatherings and religious services. 

This plan also goes along with Mayor De Blasio’s restrictive plan that was announced over the weekend, which is currently pending state approval. According to reports, Cuomo hopes that this cluster plan will help reduce the number of outbreaks. 

Please continue to social distance, wash your hands, wear a face mask.
