In an unexpected executive order issued Friday night, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York slightly loosened coronavirus restrictions, saying that gatherings of up to 10 people would be allowed “for any lawful purpose or reason” anywhere in the state — including New York City — provided that social-distance protocols were followed.

Cuomo issued the order after the New York Civil Liberties Union filed a suit that objected to Mr. Cuomo’s order on Thursday allowing groups of 10 people or less to gather for religious services or for Memorial Day celebrations. Mr. Cuomo’s order on Friday night modified the previous order.

The article goes on to state the following:

The revision was swiftly condemned by Councilman Mark D. Levine, who represents Upper Manhattan and is chairman of the City Council’s health committee. He stressed that the order had not been made by health professionals.

“This was not a decision made by health professionals. It was forced by a lawsuit. No one should interpret this as advice to change their behavior,” Levine declared.

“This shocking order, forced by a lawsuit, changes nothing about the risks associated with group gatherings–especially those held indoors. We need the public to continue to be smart and use judgement about the risks of this virus, regardless of what the court has forced on us,” the councilman added.
