"We will not return to this dark place because the local governments have not done their job," said Cuomo. He claimed that the state had received 25,000 complaints about health security violations since the pandemic, most of which concerned bars and restaurants.
"Manhattan and the Hamptons are the leading areas in the state with violations," said Cuomo. “These are not difficult to spot violations. People send videos of these violations. "
Two days ago, more than 200 people were detained at a video party at St. Marks Place in Manhattan's East Village. They ignored provisions on social distancing.
"I will not allow situations to exist that we know are likely to increase the virus," said Cuomo. "Local governments, do your job."
Cuomo said he personally “called a couple of bars and restaurants when I saw pictures of their situation. ... and I said to them: "You are playing with your [alcohol] license."
The state is in phase 1 of a four-stage reopening plan. The Hamptons are in Phase Two, which allows outdoor seating in restaurants.
