New Yorkers are now allowed to gather in small groups of 10 or fewer, after Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order late Friday.
The governor expanded his executive order from earlier in the week allowing gatherings of 10 people or fewer only for religious purposes.
After issuing the initial order, the governor was sued by the New York Civil Liberties Union, who claimed Cuomo did not have the right to determine what type of gatherings were permitted.
The new order says all gatherings are permitted so long as social distancing rules, and cleaning and disinfecting protocols, are followed.
It is in effect for 30 days, through June 21.
