Assemblyman Jones: Reopening Bowling Alleys and Gyms is Great but More Needs to be Done
After weeks of advocating for the reopening of both bowling alleys and health and fitness centers, I was pleased to hear that Governor Andrew Cuomo announced today that bowling alleys will be allowed to reopen on Monday August 17 and that guidelines for gyms and fitness centers will also be released that same day. While this is welcomed news for the North Country, I remain hopeful that the guidelines issued will allow the majority of these businesses to safely reopen, as they have waited so long to do so. These re-openings would not be possible without the hard work of my constituents who have kept the infection rate low and have proved that other businesses could be reopened safely. While I am pleased with this announcement, there is still more work that needs to be done and I will continue to advocate for remaining industries to reopen safely.
