Port Chester salons, gyms can reopen with 25% capacity despite being in orange zone
The Port Chester community protested the full closure of salons and gyms due to orange zone restrictions, and now they have the green light to reopen starting Monday.
A protest held last Monday, spearheaded by Nathanael Torres of Bloom Salon, drew dozens of local business owners.
Their call to reopen Port Chester got them a meeting with local officials.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo then announced Friday that salons and gyms in orange zones can reopen with 25% capacity.
Bloom Salons says it's excited to welcome back customers.
As part of orange zone restrictions, indoor dining is still not allowed to reopen.
