LACK OF COMPLIANCE
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that 27 additional establishments have been issued state Liquor Authority violations for a lack of compliance with New York state COVID-19 guidance on Sunday. SLA issued 105 violations on Friday and Saturday combined. Sunday’s violations were issued in all five boroughs of New York City.
The governor also updated New Yorkers on the status of the Kawasaki Disease-like syndrome that has affected children in the state. As of Friday, New York state has investigated 240 cases of the syndrome. The New York State Department of Health published a study of children with the syndrome in the New England Journal of Medicine on June 29.
“A situation that we’re watching is lack of compliance, particularly among young people, bars and restaurants,” Cuomo said in a statement. “That’s not unique to New York — it’s a national problem — and even the president of the United States said young people shouldn’t go into packed bars. I’ve said for weeks that local governments are not doing what they need to do, and they have to step up. The state will be doing everything it can with the most aggressive enforcement mechanisms available. That continued last night.”
