Addabbo thankful to see local restaurants allowed to reopen at end of the month

“I am pleased to see that New York City will be able to join our neighboring Nassau County and enjoy indoor dining starting on September 30th, allowing restaurants to continue to operate as the colder months approach,” said State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. “This will allow many restaurant owners along vital commercial strips in my district like Cross Bay Boulevard, Metropolitan Avenue, Myrtle Avenue, Main Street, Grand Avenue and Rockaway Beach Boulevard to remain in business and bring employees back, providing an economic boost to the state. The strict restrictions put in place by Governor Cuomo — such as 25% capacity, temperature checks and more — will help keep New Yorkers safe as we enter this new phase of reopening and together practice our safety precautions. I look forward to monitoring how this unfolds and exploring how we can expand it if our COVID-19 numbers remain low.”
