#AceHealthReport – July.01: You may have to wait a little longer before you can dine indoors at a restaurant in New York City: Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio said they spoke about the spike in cases across the country, and indoor dining was a main area of concern: ” We are now going to reexamine the indoor dining rules for Phase 3,” the mayor said Monday: Phase 3 is set to start on Monday, July 6. De Blasio said the rest of the phase will move forward, but indoor dining may be paused or modified: ” The most important thing is to keep us healthy and safe and not allow a resurgence,” he said:

Cuomo said the conditions in the city are complicated, because of a lack of compliance and enforcement and because of the volume of travellers: ” There’s a lack of compliance with social distancing. You can see it in pictures, you can see it if you walk down the street. You can see the crowds in front of bars, you can see the crowds on street corners,” he said. “It is undeniable.”
He said he will have a final decision about indoor dining by Wednesday: ” Indoor dining has shown that it has been problematic, that a virus spreads in closed indoor areas that have air condition systems,” he said. “The state’s going to be reviewing the data and consulting with stakeholders in New York City. I’ve started speaking with restaurant owners, business owners about the risk-reward on indoor dining.”
Both the governor and mayor said outdoor dining has been overwhelmingly successful: ” I wouldn’t go to indoor dining. I’m comfortable with outdoor dining, I’m fine with that. I just don’t feel the need to be inside a restaurant right now,” one woman said……….” I think maybe one week more,” a man added.
