State Liquor Authority and NYS Police Task Force Issued 37 Violations to Establishments Last Night
People aged 21-30 are seeing a rise in Infection Rates
Concerned over a COVID-19 Rebound and with the uptick in cases amongst the 21-30 age group, once again the Governor’s asking for local governments to do their jobs and carry out compliance and adherence enforcement.
Once again he’s asking for local police departments (NYPD) to do their jobs. Of course that’s an indirect jab at NYC Mayor de Blasio since he’s the one who’s been adamant for so long about not mixing law enforcement with social-adherence enforcement.
It’s only since the 4th of July weekend that the Mayor had upped their involvement after having his hand forced by the Governor.
One of the things we’re watching are the bar and restaurant violations and the congregations in front of bars and restaurants. We believe that’s connected to the increase in the number of young people, the infection rate among the number people, 21 to 30, went from nine to 13, so we’re watching that. I’ve asked local governments repeatedly to step up and do the enforcement,” said the Governor.
“That’s what they’re supposed to do, enforce the law. They’re not enforcing it aggressively enough. I said the State Liquor Authority and the State Police would help, and we are doing just that. Yesterday, they went out last night, through primarily the downstate area, Manhattan, Long Island, Queens, Astoria, Rockville Centre, Baldwin, Jackson Heights, Lower East Side. They found a number of violations. They’re issuing violations to 37 establishments today. So they’re doing their job, they’re doing it aggressively, but again, the State Police and the SLA are not going to be enough. Local government, stand up and do your job. NYPD, do your job. Nassau County police, do your jobs. Suffolk County police, do your job. Erie County the same thing. SLA and State Police will continue and they’re there to work hand in hand with the local governments.”
