Gov. Cuomo declines to extend bar and restaurant COVID-19 curfew for Super Bowl
New York City residents looking to watch the Super Bowl at a local bar and restaurant will likely be kicked out before the big game ends.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not extending the restaurant curfew, which calls for eateries to close at 10 p.m.
The New York State Restaurant Association asked Cuomo to loosen restrictions and allow limited indoor dining in the city, but those restrictions will still be in effect until Valentine’s Day.
Despite recommendations from medical experts, people are still expected to gather for the Super Bowl.
The New York state police say they plan to crack down on impaired and reckless driving with checkpoints to deter and arrest impaired drivers. Restaurants in the city may also be hampered by the weather with several inches of snow expected in the boroughs.
