Life A wedding in New York with 10,000 guests banned Posted on October 18, 2020 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ The authorities in the U.S. city of New York have banned a wedding where more than 10,000 people were expected due to the coronation rules. That’s what Governor Andrew Cuomo of the state of New York announced at a press conference on Saturday. The meeting was scheduled for Monday in the Williamsburg district in Brooklyn and it was supposed to be an orthodox Jewish wedding. “You can get married. But you just can’t see a thousand people at your wedding. At the end of the day, you get the same result. It’s cheaper too!”said Cuomo. New York’s rules to stop the spread of Covid-19 restrict social gatherings to a maximum of 50 people. For religious events in a church or temple the limit is 33 percent of the capacity of the building. New York was the epicenter of the American corona outbreak in the spring, and the city has recorded over 23,800 deaths. The city managed to control the crisis by letting people stay home. But in recent weeks, the number of positive Covid-19 tests has increased, especially in districts where many Orthodox Jews live. Last week, Cuomo ordered the closure of non-essential businesses in these districts and reduced the number of people that can be in temples at the same time to ten. Schools are closed. Cuomo said on Saturday that the measures are working.
