NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order allowing small non-essential gatherings just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

The order allows “any non-essential gathering of ten or fewer individuals, for any lawful purpose or reason.”

Individuals must still follow social distancing protocols and cleaning and disinfection protocols issued by the Department of Health.


Meanwhile, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy issued an executive order Friday allowing for outdoor gatherings of up to 25 people. Indoor gatherings in New Jersey are still limited to 10 people.

    And again, this is so urgent to remember: 35 percent of those who have the virus will exhibit little to no symptoms, but are still capable of spreading it to others; some of whom could unfortunately become quite ill or even die. So please be compassionate and think about the well being of those around you..

    Inevitably, getting back to normal, and in a reliable fashion where we don’t fall back with more getting infected, will depend on individual social responsibility; wearing masks while around others, and maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet whether you are around one person or many. Do not let your guard down.
