State to allow Memorial Day ceremonies: governor


New York state will allow Memorial Day ceremonies to take place this coming weekend, Governor Cuomo said at his daily briefing on Tuesday.

Ceremonies must, however, be limited to 10 or fewer people, and social distancing — standing six feet apart — must be maintained to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Cuomo also encouraged car parades to honor the fallen on Memorial Day, which will be marked officially on Monday, May 25, although the dates of ceremonies and parades may vary from community to community.
