NEW YORK – Starting April 1 new guidelines for both indoor and outdoor sports and performing arts venues go into effect in New York State.







New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the change in guidance during a COVID-19 briefing on Thursday.

Cuomo saying positivity rates and hospitalizations are continuing to drop, with vaccinations going up.







Because of the “good news” the state is retooling gathering restrictions for performance and sports venues.

“April 1 sports venues with 1500 plus indoor or 2,500 plus outdoor capacity, indoor we’ll do 10 percent capacity, outdoor we’ll do 20 percent capacity,” said Cuomo. “We’ll have testing required when we open, if you get your vaccine, I have my card, I can go to a game as soon as it opens.”













On sports travel, the governor announced that starting Monday, March 29, restrictions will be lifted. Statewide travel for sports and recreational activities will be allowed.

He also addressed outdoor performing arts venues, saying that on April 1, large venues with 2,500 seat capacity or more can open at 20 percent capacity as well.
