    Gov Cuomo shuts down nine NYC neighborhoods where COVID is rising

    Gov Cuomo forces non-essential businesses to close, bans religious gatherings of more than 10 people and stops all dining in nine NYC neighborhoods where COVID-19 rates are surging

    Governor Andrew Cuomo has imposed strict new restrictions on nine New York City neighborhoods where COVID-19 rates are surging that includes shutting down non-essential businesses and banning religious gatherings of more than 10 people.

    Cuomo made the announcement on Tuesday just one day after he ruled that hundreds of schools in those nine neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens had to close.

    In addition to the ban on large religious gatherings and closure of non-essential businesses, restaurants will also be forced to go back to offering takeout only – just a week after they were cleared to begin welcoming diners back indoors.

    The new rules, which will be in place for at least two weeks, will go into affect as early as Wednesday but no later than Friday.

    The tough new restrictions (above in red) will currently apply to nine neighborhoods in Brookyn and Queens where COVID rates are surging. Restrictions will also be imposed on some surrounding neighborhoods to act as a buffer 

    New York City, overall, continues to see the virus spread at relatively low levels compared to much of the rest of the country but a handful of areas in Brooklyn and Queens have seen infection rates rising.

    The nine ZIP codes singled out for restrictions have been responsible for more than 20 percent of all new infections in the city over the past four weeks despite representing only 7 percent of the population.  

    The citywide positive infection rate is now at 1.9 percent. Rates in those nine hotspot zip codes is as high as eight percent in some neighborhoods.  

    Most of the neighborhoods targeted by the restrictions are home to part of the city’s large Orthodox Jewish community. 

    ‘A mass gathering causes infections, infections cause a cluster, a cluster causes community spread,’ Cuomo said. ‘That is the national evolution of things unless we intervene and we stop the cycle.’  

    Cuomo’s announcement came just hours after Mayor Bill de Blasio said he was ready to shut down non-essential businesses in the nine zip codes. 

    De Blasio had put forward the plan to Cuomo to shutter non-essential business but needed state approval. 

    Cuomo was scheduled to meet with Orthodox leaders on Tuesday to seek their help with getting people to comply with social distancing rules. 

    The governor and mayor have repeatedly squabbled over government responses to the spread of COVID-19.
