New York's Cuomo says amusement parks, camps can reopen this summer as state monitors Covid variants
New York is forging ahead with reopening more businesses amid a post-holiday decline in Covid-19 cases, but the state's keeping "one eye" on troublesome variants of the virus that could reverse its progress. "That doesn't happen until June and we hope the current trajectory stays until June — one eye on these variants of interest," Cuomo said regarding summer camps. Over the weekend, New York City restaurants were allowed to reopen their indoor dining sections at 25% capacity. However, new and highly contagious Covid-19 variants could reverse New York's progress or hinder its planned reopenings. Dr. Rochelle Walensky, head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said on Wednesday that nationwide Covid-19 cases have declined for five consecutive weeks now, and new hospitalizations have similarly dropped since early January.cnbc.com

Restaurant owner says he’ll keep serving one table at a time indoors despite COVID restrictions
But for everything he’s invested in the business, he’s risking citations from health officials by allowing a single table of customers to eat in at his otherwise empty dining room because of COVID-19 restrictions.
