Gov. Andrew Cuomo will lift most remaining Covid-19 restrictions in the state when 70% of adult New Yorkers have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
“We hit 70%, we will be back to life as normal — or as normal as you can be post-Covid,” Cuomo said at a June 7 press conference.
The state will lift its guidelines for retail, food services, offices, gyms, amusement and family entertainment, hair salons, barber shops, personal care services, and other commercial settings after that benchmark. That’s likely to happen in only a few days; presently, at least 68.6% of New Yorkers got at least one dose.
