New York City’s prohibition on indoor dining will be lifted on September 30, albeit with extremely tight restrictions.

The news was announced by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday.

Restaurants will be permitted to open their indoor dining rooms with no more than 25% capacity. Patrons will be required to don masks when not seated. Employees will be required to always wear face masks. Restaurants in other parts of the state are allowed to operate at half their capacity.

The move comes six months after restaurants were forced to close amidst the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.  Earlier in the summer, restaurants were permitted to offer outdoor dining.
