January 29th local time, New York Governor Cuomo said at a press conference that if the positive rate and hospitalization rate of COVID-19 continue to maintain the current downward trend, New York City restaurants can reopen indoor dining with 25% of the passenger flow on February 14.

Cuomo said that the data on the COVID-19 epidemic in New York State are currently declining, and the positive rate has dropped to 4.65%, the lowest since December 11 last year.

At the same time, he also announced that the wedding event may resume on March 15 and follow certain guidelines, but all participants must be tested for the novel coronavirus, and the venue must not exceed 50% capacity, up to 150 people, and must be approved by the local health department.
