Governor Cuomo's latest executive order modifies the state's absolute ban on gatherings of any size.

Now that the Memorial Day holiday weekend has started, the governor is allowing any non-essential gathering of 10 or fewer people.


Social distancing guidelines, along with cleaning and disinfecting protocols must still be followed during the coronavirus pandemic.

This move is one of the biggest steps New York has taken to loosen rules adopted in March prohibiting anyone but essential workers from getting together unless they live in the same household.

Don't forget state officials remind masks are a must if you can't maintain 6 feet distance from others.
