Governor Andrew Cuomo, in a joint statement with New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont, announced Monday morning that bars and restaurants in New York State (and New Jersey and Connecticut) will only be allowed to take takeout and delivery orders starting at 8 p.m. Monday.

Gyms, movie theaters and casinos will also close in all three states as of 8 p.m. Monday.

Crowd capacity for social and recreational gatherings will be limited to 50 people in all three states.

The three governors say they made the decision "amid a lack of federal direction or nationwide standards."

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced similar restrictions for New York City that were scheduled to go into effect at 9 a.m. Tuesday, but these restrictions from the governor supersede the mayor's restrictions.

The governor is strongly advising only essential businesses stay open past 8 p.m. Monday.

It is not mandatory, but it is “strongly” advised, Cuomo said.

From the state capitol, the governor said gas stations, pharmacies and grocery stores should remain open.

All of these measures, including the closure of gyms and bars announced earlier, are to curtail the spread of the virus. Cuomo said they will expand testing — hoping to approach 7,000 tests a day later this week.

Right now, there are 950 cases statewide — 463 of them are in New York City. About 17 percent of those cases are hospitalized.

The governor is asking all cities to identify spaces to serve as makeshift hospitals. He is asking City Hall to find space for 5,000 temporary hospital beds.

After success in Westchester, the governor also said there will be a drive-thru testing facility on Staten Island. It’s unclear when that will open precisely.

"I think Staten Island feels they have not gotten the attention of health services that they need,” Cuomo said. “I believe this is going to make a difference.”

Another drive thru testing center will be opened in Rockland County.
