New York summer camps cleared to open June 29
(AP) Summer day camps in New York state can open June 29, though no decision has been made yet on sleep-away camps, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday.
Cuomo's administration did not immediately provide details on what sort of restrictions camps would operate under.
"Our young people have experienced both the trauma and the boredom of all these weeks of lockdown. They deserve to enjoy a safe summer filled with fun,” Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein of Brooklyn said in a news release.
The green light on summer camps comes as the state continues to relax restrictions amid slow progress in taming the outbreak.
