When Phase 3 of reopening starts Wednesday here in the Capital Region, the cap on gatherings will be raised from 10 to 25.

It is great news all around today as Governor Cuomo announced during his daily press conference that not only is the Capital Region set to start phase three of reopening on Wednesday, the cap on gatherings will also be going up. The Governor announced that all regions in phase three can now have gatherings of up to 25 people.

Maybe 25 people does not seem like a lot, but think about the many things you and your family can start doing again that fall in the 25 person wheelhouse. Gatherings like birthday parties, backyard barbecues, small graduation parties and more. So even though large gatherings are most likely still a ways off, at least now we can start gathering a little more and enjoying more time with our family and friends.
