Ramapo Encouraged by Governor’s Decision to Re-open Large Arenas

Ramapo’s supervisor has hope for the upcoming baseball season in Pomona, even though the governor’s recent directive doesn’t apply to Palisades Credit Union Park. Governor Andrew Cuomo announced last week that the Buffalo Bills playoffs pilot program was a success, so sports and entertainment events in major stadiums and arenas with a capacity of 10,000 or more can re-open with limited spectators and COVID precautions starting February 23rd. The New York Boulders’ ballpark in Pomona has a capacity of just under 7,000, so it doesn’t qualify, but Ramapo’s supervisor Michael Specht says it’s critical to get the stadium open again…

The governor has relented slightly on restrictions to restaurants and bars. Saying he’s continuing to follow the science and react accordingly, Cuomo extended closing times for restaurants and bars from 10pm to 11pm statewide. That executive order went into effect last night.
