In a major setback for New York City’s economic recovery amid the coronavirus pandemic, indoor dining will shut down yet again Monday due to a resurgence of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Friday.
Cuomo, during a virtual press briefing, explained that the Big Apple’s coronavirus-related hospitalization rate has been dramatically increasing over the last two weeks.
The governor pumped the brakes on indoor dining even though the
state’s own contact tracing data – released Friday — shows that
restaurants and bars account for just 1.43 percent of recent known
COVID-19 exposures. MORE AT https://nypost.com/2020/12/11/andrew-cuomo-shuts-down-indoor-dining-in-nyc-amid-covid-19-surge/
