After the successful result of the Buffalo Bills playoff game model, Governor Andrew Cuomo is going to let large arenas begin hosting music and sporting events again after February 23.
“We’re going to now extend the Buffalo Bills example: Any large stadium or arena can open on February 23,” Gov. Cuomo said. “Their plan has to be approved by the New York State Department of Health: Its 10% capacity for arenas 10,000 and above. A negative PCR test with face coverings, social distancing, and then mandatory assigned seating. This hits the balance of safe reopening.”
All future events must be approved by the New York State Health Department as well.
