NY will soon allow more people inside Museums, Theaters and Large Venues

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is allowing more people to go inside museums, movie theaters and indoor big sports arenas as the latest data suggests New York’s massive vaccination campaign is curbing COVID-19 infection levels. The state recorded just under 43,000 new cases in the seven-day period that ended Sunday. That’s the lowest number for any seven-day stretch since Thanksgiving. Museums and zoos in New York can open up their doors to 50% of their normal capacity starting Monday. Movie theaters can now seat up to one-third of normal capacity. On May 19, large indoor arenas can increase their capacity to 25%.
