Ban On Events/Spaces Of 500 People Or More Until Further Notice

The number of New Yorkers being treated for the coronavirus is continuing to climb steadily.

Officials say there are over 300 confirmed cases of the disease statewide.

Starting at 5:00PM, there will be no gatherings of 500 people or more allowed until further notice.

Any locations holding fewer than 500 people can only operate at 50 percent capacity.

Places like schools, hospitals, mass transit facilities, and nursing homes aren't subject to the restrictions.

Officials say they hope this decision limits the spread of coronavirus statewide.
