Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the state will begin to lift some COVID-19 restrictions this week as the state’s coronavirus positivity rate and other benchmarks are decreasing.
Cuomo said he will lower restrictions in micro-cluster zones statewide–including a Queens yellow zone that covers portions of northern and central Queens. He will announce the exact changes on Wednesday, he told reporters today.
However, he said indoor dining, which has been banned across the five boroughs since Dec. 14, is unlikely to reopen this week.
