ALBANY – Bars that only serve alcohol to customers have never been allowed to reopen during the ongoing pandemic, but have seized a loophole in New York law in which there is no distinction between restaurants that serve food and establishments that primarily serve drinks, Governor Andrew Says Mr. Cuomo.
“We never allowed the bars to reopen. Most states have not allowed bars to operate, ”Cuomo said Tuesday morning. “New Jersey does not allow bars to operate. Bars are congregations of people on the move – and that’s exactly what we’re trying to avoid. “
