Governor Cuomo Closes Indoor Malls, Amusement Parks and Bowling Alleys
Indoor malls, amusement parks and bowling alleys are closing in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and New Jersey.
Sangertown Square Mall will close at 8pm Thursday, March 19th. Destiny USA closed Wednesday.
“We are in unprecedented times and understand the direction from New York State is the result of the presence of the Coronavirus in the communities we serve,” said Stephen Congel, chief executive officer, Pyramid Management Group. “We respect the decision to further enhance community mitigation and reduce density for the greater good of our community, tenants, guests and employees.”
Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods and others with dedicated exterior entrances, will have be able to remain open.
"We are doing everything we can as states to reduce density and contain the spread of the virus," Cuomo said. "It is critical that we remain on the same page as our neighboring states, and so far we are the only region in the country partnering to create uniform, regional density reduction policies that prevent 'state shopping.' We will continue working together to update our regulations and guidance as the situation evolves while keeping a consistent standard across the region."
