The curfew for some businesses just got an expiration date, but it won’t apply to bars and restaurants.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that the 11 p.m. curfew for certain recreational businesses will end April 5, Syracuse Media reported. The change covers casinos, pool halls, movie theaters, bowling alleys, gyms and fitness centers.

Notably absent from the list are bars and restaurants, where the early closing time will remain. Cuomo plans to review the curfew and make an updated announcement in April, the website reported.

Catered events will still be required to end at midnight, the publication added.

Cuomo recently announced that restaurants outside of New York City could run at 75 percent capacity starting March 19, up from the current 50 percent. The city’s indoor dining capacity remains 35 percent.

Restrictions are being eased around New York, with arts and entertainment events permitted as soon as this weekend with state approval, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Generally, venues will be allowed to open at 33 percent capacity with a cap of 100 people indoors and 200 people outdoors beginning April 2, according to the publication. Attendees are required to submit a negative Covid test before entering and must wear masks.
