ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — New York State's loosened restrictions on weddings and other catered events took effect Monday, allowing room for more guests, while still keeping restrictions in place.

To recap, venues can host weddings and-or catered events at 50 percent capacity, with no more than 150 people in attendance, all guests are required have to have a test beforehand.

Governor Cuomo announced the new rules back in February, much to the refreshment of venue owners, and people who had to push back their wedding dates.

Additionally, sign-in contact information must be filled out to help out with contact tracing, as well as mask requirements except for when seated or eating and drinking. Ceremonial and physically-distanced dancing will be allowed, but under strict guidelines.
