NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo Says New York City Movie Theaters Can Reopening March 5 – Deadline
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday said movie theaters in New York City will be brought into line with the rest of New York state as of March 5, when they will be allowed to reopen at 25% capacity with no more than 50 people per screen, masks, social distancing and other protocols.
The guidelines include air filtration and purification standards previously specified by the Department of Justice.
Officials at Cuomo’s press briefing today said no Covid-19 testing will be required, as is the case for large areas like Madison Square Garden and Barclay’s Center that can reopen later in February. The cinemas in New York City will follow the same guidance put in place for movie theaters in the rest of New York state back in October.
