NEW YORK - After being cooped up for the past year, kids in the city now have more options to get out and have some fun.
All indoor family entertainment centers were allowed to reopen their doors Friday.
This includes arcades, playhouses and trampoline parks.
Capacity is limited to 25 percent, face coverings and social distancing are required, and areas must be cleaned and ventilated.
Aga Dojlidko, owner of owner Kid Fun House in Ridgewood, Queens, says she was surprised by the announcement, but resuming business is a welcome relief.
"Past year has been very challenging, very difficult, emotionally, we didn't know if we would ever reopen, there was not much guidance for our type of business, they just gave us the light to go a few weeks ago and for almost a year nobody even mentioned out type of business, entertainment, indoor playgrounds, so it has been very stressful," Dojlidko said.
Yankee Stadium and Citi Field will host their home openers at 20% capacity next week.
Outdoor amusement parks will follow on April 9th at 33% capacity.
The state has also told summer camps to prepare for reopening, but a date for that has not been set as of yet.
