Under Legal Pressure, New York Relaxes Restrictions On More Gatherings

New York eases ban on meetings

New York eases ban on meetings

The order came after the New York Civil Liberties Union on Friday morning filed a lawsuit against the governor over his order that prohibited gatherings of any size on behalf of a woman who was arrested two times during a protest over the state's ongoing economic shutdown outside New York City Hall.

NYCLU legal director Christopher Dunn said in a statement that the organization was "pleased to see the governor in reverse". Each ad was tasked with why New Yorkers should wear a mask: the context, the rationale, the health reasons, the social responsibility and that it's just not that big a deal.

The coronavirus killed 109 other people in the state on Thursday. A total of 23,279 people have died so far statewide from the virus.

Single day fatalities in NY peaked April 7, when 799 people died from COVID-19.

Under guidelines meant to keep crowds from flocking to the beaches, people who live nearby can go there to walk or to sit, de Blasio said. "By any normal standard this is a ugly number".

"We are aligned in our approach - nothing will reopen until it is safe to do so", de Blasio spokeswoman Jane Meyer said in an interview.

Meanwhile, Mayor Bill de Blasio has been working on plans for reopening New York City, which has recorded more than 20,000 coronavirus related deaths.

Once those metrics are reached, different regions across the state can reopen their economics in four phases.

The school in Kiryas Joel was served with a cease-and-desist order Thursday after officials discovered it operating in defiance of a almost two-month-old order by the governor closing all public and private schools in the state.

There were 1,772 new COVID cases in NY, bringing the statewide total to 359,926 confirmed cases.
