Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced new regulations for bars and restaurants to make sure they’re complying with COVID-19 safety orders. 
Gov. Cuomo announced the new rules on Thursday as a part of the ‘Three Strikes and You’re Closed’ initiative. 
If a restaurant owner in New York City receives three violations for noncompliance of social distancing and face coverings, their establishment will be closed. 
Any business facing disciplinary charges by the State Liquor Authority will have its name and location posted publicly and the list will be updated weekly. 
Now statewide, bars and restaurants must only serve alcohol to customers who are ordering food. This is to prevent bar gatherings. 
A decision will be made Friday on whether or not NYC will enter phase four on Monday. This is after new COVID-19 numbers are gathered. 
However, the governor has made it clear that there will not be additional indoor activity.
