Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York announced on Monday that Broadway theaters and a slew of other places would be close to fully reopened by May 19.
Cuomo described the initiative as a "major reopening" and said "most capacity restrictions" would be lifted across theaters, gyms, museums, restaurants, bars, amusement parks, and shops.
In his announcement on Monday, Cuomo said Broadway theaters would not need to observe social-distancing requirements if they require guests to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.
A show from the Tony Award winners Nathan Lane and Savion Glover opened for a crowd of 150 people on Broadway in early April, but most theaters have remained closed as unions and theater owners figure out how to get performances back up and running.
