It has been a back and forth battle between the restaurant industry and New York State.  Today the restaurant industry was dealt another blow.

When the pandemic began, restaurants were shut down completely.  They were forced to move entirely to take-out.  The goal was to "flatten the curve" and bring numbers of positive cases of COVID-19 down.  As the numbers began to go back down, they were once again allowed to open, but with restrictions.  Unfortunately one of those restrictions was a curfew.

A large group of restaurants got together and sued the state to stay open past the 11 p.m. curfew.  They won.

But today, according to WKBW, an appellate division court in Rochester that represents 22 counties in Western and Central New York has ruled that those restaurants will once again need to abide by the 11 p.m. curfew.
