Closing time extended to gyms and fitness centers, casinos, billiards halls
Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday announced that, given the continued decline in hospitalization and infection rates throughout New York, he signed executive order 202.94, extending closing times for bars, restaurants, gyms and fitness centers, casinos, billiards halls, as well as other State Liquor Authority-licensed establishments, from 10 to 11 p.m. statewide.
"Hospitalizations and the positivity rate continue to decline, and with the holiday surge now in our rear-view mirror, we must keep taking steps to further reopen the economy safely and responsibly," Cuomo said. "Accordingly, I have already signed an executive order to move the closing times for restaurants and bars to 11 p.m. statewide, and now we will do the same for gyms and fitness centers, casinos, billiards halls and any other location with an SLA license. As we move forward, we will continue to follow the science and data and take these kinds of steps to help us finally return to normal."
On Friday, the governor announced closing times for restaurants and bars would be extended from 10 to 11 p.m. statewide, and this executive order extends that closing time for gyms or fitness centers, casinos, billiards halls, as well as any SLA-licensed establishment.
