JAMESTOWN – More than 100 people participated in a rally protesting government restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic in Jamestown Friday afternoon.








Protestors spoke out against the New York State on PAUSE order.

The executive order requires all non-essential businesses statewide to close, bans non-essential gatherings of individuals of any size for any reason and requires New Yorkers to limit outdoor recreational activities to non-contact and avoid activities where they come in close contact with other people, among other things.









Governor Andrew Cuomo was asked Friday if and when the PAUSE would be extended. The Governor said if an extension would be made it would be announced prior to the May 15 expiration date.

The rally was part of a statewide protest dubbed “Rally to Free New York,” hosted by the Community Outreach Initiatives and The Constitutional Coalition of NYS.

  1. I want to see the faces of the people who have no comprehension of science so I can avoid them.
