CUOMO, DE BLASIO WRONG TO LIMIT WORSHIP SERVICES, CONDONE MASS PROTESTS: FEDERAL JUDGE

Church officials said people must follow guidelines set by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include staying at least 6 feet apart and wearing face coverings.

The cathedral will follow the 25 percent capacity rule for indoor religious gatherings set by New York, despite a federal judge on Friday blocking the state from enforcing the rule. The judge said religious activities would be treated less favorably than other gatherings that are limited to 50 percent capacity.
