The New York authorities have banned a planned wedding that may have more than 10,000 guests. The celebration planned for tomorrow in the Brooklyn borough would have violated the assembly restrictions in force in the pandemic, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said at a press conference. According to media reports, it was a Jewish Orthodox wedding.
“You can get married. You just can’t have a thousand people in one wedding. At the end of the day you have the same result. And it’s cheaper too, ”said Cuomo. A maximum of 50 participants are allowed in events in New York. Places of worship such as churches and temples may not be occupied more than a third of their capacity.
There was also a dispute over a wedding in Italy. In Pontinia near Rome, a ceremony with 82 guests was dissolved. After a complaint, the police broke into the restaurant where the party was going on and punished the owner of the restaurant and the guests, who had to pay 400 euros per person. As of Wednesday, only 30 people have been allowed to attend celebrations in Italy.
