I think most people that I ever had in my home was a few years ago for a Christmas party, we had maybe twelve or thirteen people in the house.
It wasn’t that big of a thing, I have seen parties for people that have been in the dozens. Now, with the holidays coming up you can get into some pretty high numbers. The fact that there are liberal governors wanting to tell people how many folks can be in a private home that we pay good money for is mind boggling.
It is this kind of stuff that is going to get people ran out of office.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday ordered his state’s citizens to limit gatherings at private residences just two weeks before Thanksgiving.
The governor, as part of a broader crackdown on activities to slow the spread of the coronavirus, announced new guidelines on Twitter for what New Yorkers can do inside of their own property.
“New York follows the science,” Cuomo claimed.
“We know indoor gatherings and parties are a major source of COVID spread. To slow the spread, NYS will limit indoor gatherings at private residences to 10 people,” he added.
“This limit takes effect Friday at 10pm,” the Democrat concluded.
Households with more than 10 residents are an exception to the restriction.
WGRZ-TV reported the limit on gatherings inside of private residences will coincide with new orders for businesses as cases of the coronavirus continue to rise in the state.
For example, any business with a liquor license will be forced to close at 10 p.m. nightly. Gyms will also be forced to close at 10 p.m. nightly. Restrictions on indoor dining could soon follow.
Citing contact tracing, Cuomo blamed new cases of the virus on house parties, gyms and the food and drink service industry.
“If you look at where the cases are coming from, if you do the contact tracing, you’ll see they’re coming from three main areas: establishments where alcohol is served, gyms, and indoor gatherings at private homes,” he said.
“The reason we have been successful in reducing the spread in New York is we have been a step ahead of COVID. You know where it’s going; stop it before it gets there. And you know where it’s going by following the science,” Cuomo added.
