Starting Thursday, religious gatherings of no more than 10 people can be held in New York State. Governor Andrew Cuomo says strict social distancing measures will be enforced and participants must wear masks.
During his briefing, Cuomo said that religious organizations would be allowed to hold parking lot and drive-in services, as long as social distancing was followed and masks were worn.
Religious gatherings of no more than 10 people are also allowed, again, as long as social distancing is followed and masks are worn.
Cuomo reiterated the importance of wearing a mask.
“If people are smart, and if people are responsible…if individuals are responsible, you will see infection rates slow,” Cuomo said. “It is amazing how effective a mask is.”
