Cuomo: Small ceremonies will be allowed this holiday weekend

Small ceremonies will be allowed over the holiday weekend, Governor Andrew Cuomo signaled on Tuesday.

Local governments will be given the final decision on whether to allow those small ceremonies, which will need to be limited to 10 people or less.

Cuomo said hospitalizations, hospitalizations, intubations and overall new cases continue to decrease across the state. He said 105 people died from the virus between Monday and Tuesday.

Governor Cuomo said Memorial Day is too important to let pass without some effort to thank those service members.
