New York to Allow Wedding Gatherings in Early 2021

0 Comments

You got the ring, planned out the whole day, and then, boom, COVID, right? Many got married in smaller (sometimes Zoom) ceremonies but for those who held out, here comes the bride!

As of March 15th, New York will allow wedding receptions with up to 150 people as long as each guest is tested for COVID-19.

According to New York Upstate, “The events must be approved by local health departments. The guest count will be limited to the 150-person cap or 50% of the reception venue’s capacity, whichever is smaller.”

Indoor festivities are still at a capacity of 10 people and outdoor events at a capacity of 50 people. Governor Cuomo went into further detail during his State of the State address saying that “We must bring culture and arts back to life. We must act. We cannot wait until summer to turn the lights back on for the arts. We will not let the curtain fall on their careers or on the future of our cities.”

His thought process seems to be that if people know that everyone was tested and the environment is safe then they would be more apt to come. “I believe if I said today, movie theaters can open to 100%, I don’t believe people go. I believe people have to be confident that it’s safe”
