NEW YORK (WKBW) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed an executive order keeping restaurants, bars, and other State Liquor Authority-licensed establishments open until 11 p.m. statewide, starting Sunday.

"Hospitalizations and the positivity rate continue to decline, and with the holiday surge now in our rear-view mirror, we must keep taking steps to further re-open the economy safely and responsibly," Governor Cuomo said. "Accordingly, I have already signed an Executive Order to move the closing times for restaurants and bars to 11 p.m. statewide, and now we will do the same for gyms and fitness centers, casinos, billiards halls and any other location with an SLA license. As we move forward, we will continue to follow the science and data and take these kinds of steps to help us finally return to normal."

The 11 p.m. closing time has also been extended to the following places statewide

  • Gyms and Fitness Centers
