Governor Andrew Cuomo announced today that COVID-19 restrictions in two Queens coronavirus hotspots will be eased as infection rates have come down.

The Central Queens and Far Rockaway red and orange zones have been downgraded to yellow zones — in which nonessential businesses and schools are permitted to reopen.

Businesses that had shuttered in the red zones on Oct. 8 can reopen as early as Thursday. Schools that were forced to close in red and orange zones can reopen Monday, secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa said in a Tweet.
