Planning a large family gathering in New York for Thanksgiving? Fuggedaboutit.
CNN – Indoor and outdoor gatherings in private homes in New York state will be limited to 10 people, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday.
Covid-19 cases are rising in New York and neighboring states, and the move aims to curb traffic from more restricted states into New York, said Cuomo.
“If the national numbers are going up, and the states around you are going up, be prepared,” Cuomo said at the press conference.
New York reported 4,820 new Covid-19 cases and 21 deaths on Wednesday, according to a tweet from Cuomo.
