Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced on 6/15/21 that COVID-19 restrictions are lifted immediately as 70 percent of New Yorkers aged 18 or older have received the first dose of their COVID-19 vaccination series. The State's health guidance and New York Forward industry specific guidelines—including social gathering limits, capacity restrictions, social distancing, cleaning and disinfection, health screening, and contact information for tracing—are now optional for retail, food services, offices, gyms and fitness centers, amusement and family entertainment, hair salons, barber shops and personal care services, among other commercial settings. 

In accordance with this announcement, the City of Ithaca outdoor/open air pavilions occupancy will no longer be restricted.  The Stewart Park Large Pavilion which is considered an indoor space has a posted capacity limit of 194.  We encourage pavilion/park users to continue to utilize current CDC COVID-19 mitigation protocols.
