NYC Could Delay Start of Indoor Dining


Indoor dining is supposed to begin on Monday in New York City, along with the rest of phase three of reopening.

But now, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio say that could change.

"We all love indoor dining, but we also see problems related with indoor dining,” Mayor de Blasio said.

He called it the “nexus” for the rise in coronavirus cases in a number of states across the country. De Blasio said he’s now working with the governor’s team to re-examine the issue.

“Indoor dining has shown that it has been problematic. That a virus spreads in closed, indoor areas that have air conditioned systems. We know that indoor dining has been problematic,” Governor Cuomo said.

A final decision from Governor Cuomo is expected on Wednesday.
