The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday that he'll soon allow indoor dining to resume in New York City, after nearly six months of no inside customers as a result of the coronavirus.
The Democratic governor said restaurants starting Sept. 30 will be allowed to open at "25% of indoor dining with certain restrictions."
Among the other restrictions: Restaurants will not be allowed to operate after midnight, mask usage must be enforced, and patrons must submit personal information to restaurants for contact-tracing purposes.
The announcement comes shortly after hundreds of New York City restaurants filed a $2 billion class-action lawsuit against Cuomo and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio over the ongoing restaurant closures.
