The spring iteration of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is officially postponed. The announcement follows the latest proclamation by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo stating that all restaurants and bars in New York State must limit their services to takeout and delivery as of 8 p.m. Monday.
Effective 8PM TONIGHT:
-Crowd capacity reduced to 50
-Restaurants/bars will be takeout/delivery ONLY
-Movie theaters closed
— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) March 16, 2020
This move comes in conjunction with the state’s mandate to reduce crowd capacity to 50 and close casinos, gyms, and movie theaters to promote social distancing. Grocery stores are still open, although some are reducing their hours. Call ahead to confirm openings and delivery options and platforms for each restaurant. Anyone who feels unwell should stay home, and everyone should remain at least three feet apart, wash hands often, cough into elbows, and avoid touching their face.
Stay tuned for announcements regarding the return of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week at a future date.
