ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) Governor Cuomo has signed an executive order extending the closing times for more businesses across New York State to 11 p.m.

The curfew is now extended from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. for bars, restaurants,gymsandfitness centers, casinos, billiards halls and otherState Liquor Authority-licensed businesses, according to the governors office.

This change is effective February 14.

The governor says the curfew extension is a result of declining COVID-19 related hospitalizations and infection rates.

Hospitalizations and the positivity rate continue to decline, and with the holiday surge now in our rear-view mirror, we must keep taking steps to further re-open the economy safely and responsibly.

Accordingly, I have already signed an Executive Order to move the closing times for restaurants and bars to 11 p.m. statewide, and now we will do the same forgyms and fitness centers, casinos, billiards halls and any other location with an SLA license. As we move forward,we will continue to follow the science and data andtake these kindsof steps to help us finally return to normal.

This move comes after the governor extended bar and restaurant closing times in New York from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. earlier this week.
