Low-risk youth sports get the green light to resume in Phase III

New York is leading the nation’s virus reduction.

That’s according to Governor Andrew Cuomo.

“On the numbers, we are making really great progress,” Cuomo said during his Sunday briefing.

Low-risk youth sports for regions in Phase III can begin on July 6th with up to two spectators per child. Those sports include baseball, softball, gymnastics, field hockey, cross country, and crew.

“That’s another step towards return to normalcy,” said Cuomo.

Cuomo said the state has received 25,000 complaints from across the state of large gatherings, social distancing concerns, and people not wearing masks in public.

Cuomo said those violate the law.

“This is a very serious situation,” he said. A bar or restaurant can lose its liquor license. Someone caught not wearing a mask could face a fine. Local governments may be shutdown for failure to enforce the law.

Police officers and protesters are required to wear a mask.
