Gov. Andrew Cuomo said there was “significant evidence” restaurants in New York City were violating social distancing policies designed to contain the spread of Covid-19 and threatened to close establishments that don’t follow the rules.
“There is significant evidence of failure to comply,” especially at restaurants and bars in New York City, Cuomo told reporters on a conference call Thursday. “It’s wrong. It’s dangerous. It’s selfish. It’s unacceptable.”
