I just fail to understand why places Upstate are allowed to operate at 50%, when NYC has lower Covid rates. The Bronx, and Manhattan...arent they not even in orange but still closed? How is it Staten sued and NYC still wasn't included in any reopening? I'm so confused by the the most recent decision.

And isn't Covid flattening out in NYC?

Ask yourself this. How is sitting outside for 20-40 people in a closed tent any safer than sitting inside?

Its meant to destroy economy and ruin lives. Also its there to show that government has control over people and make decisions for you, whats good or bad for you.

regulations are influenced by population density and size a policy error has much bigger consequences
Look up any place in New York on Wikipedia. Then at right in the info box look at population size and density
They are trying to prevent another California

We're in NYC for the next few months for my job, and we've seen some very creative "outdoor" spaces so far lol. Some are fully enclosed structures with doors to enter, but I guess because they're placed on the sidewalk/street, they're deemed safe from COVID . I don't blame the businesses for coming up with these solutions; the policies are a complete joke. Add on to that the "gotta buy food with your beer" nonsense, we have seen multiple places specifically offering what is labeled as "Cuomo Snacks" or a "Cuomo Menu".

If a tent is open on one side is it safer than being inside?

I need a yes or no on this, thanks

Ive seen many tents outside that are closed in with a door goin in. And no, there was no air purifier attached to it, no special filtration. Basically restaurants just doing whatever possible to play along with the governor and mayor to stay open.

Of course it would be safer.

The hypocrisy lies in the fact that fully enclosed tents/sheds (which are allowed right now) are considered "safe" by policy-makers, but dining/drinking indoors even with a window/door open is not.

It's more than tents.

There are many MANY fully enclosed wooden structures. Some that separate the diners, some that don't.

These restaurants spent tens of thousands of dollars to try to desperately keep their restaurants going and their employees, employed.

And I don't blame them one bit.

I laugh at the people who answer your questions, written as if you're some kind of authority figure.
