Though the weather is finally warming up, indoor dining in NYC can expand to 50% capacity starting Friday, March 19.
Indoor dining remained closed through most of the winter due to a high COVID-19 positivity rate in the city, while regions around it reopened. Then, on February 12, it reopened for the first time since early December, at 25% capacity.
And now, it can be increased to 50% capacity, Governor Cuomo announced today. Our neighbors in New Jersey did the same shortly after.
Other recent reopening announcements in NYC include:
- Arenas and stadiums reopened last month
- Movie theater reopened after almost a year last week
- Theaters and smaller entertainment venues can reopen in April
- Amusement parks (including Coney Island) can also reopen next month
