Dining options end in New York City as winter storm approaches


NEW YORK CITY (WABC) – Dining out in New York City has ended for at least two weeks due to COVID-19 restrictions. Restaurant demands with a winter storm coming this week have some calling it a endless nightmare and say it is impossible to survive.
Indoor meals ended in town starting at 10 p.m. Sunday. Now restaurants are only allowed to sit outside and take out, but with the storms heading our way, anyone is unlikely to dine outside.

The city has developed terminology that restaurants should pay special attention to.

A notice of winter operations should be adopted if there is:
– Under an inch of buildup
– Meals on the road can continue

But a snowfall warning, which may be later this week, goes into effect if:
– There is more than an inch of buildup
– The roadway restaurant must close
– The whole structure must be broken down if the forecasts exceed 12 ”

A new survey of 6,000 restaurants from the New York State Restaurant Association indicates that 50% of restaurants in the state will not survive the next six months without government help. Meanwhile, Governor Cuomo has said a blackout may be possible next month.
