Are You in a Cluster Zone? Here Are the Updated Maps — and a Reminder of the Rules

NBC Universal, Inc.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has shifted New York's cluster zones yet again, adding multiple new yellow zones in Westchester and Orange counties while extending the yellow zone in Rockland. He also warned the entirety of New York City could turn orange soon. The existing zones see varying restrictions based on risk; the same color-coded categorization applies.

The red shaded areas see nonessential businesses closed and schools switch all-remote. Orange zones also move schools fully remote, but have less harsh restrictions on business, while yellow areas have more leeway with precautions.

Here are the rules by color code. Below that, you'll find the updated cluster zone maps. The city also developed a searchable online tool to help people determine if their address is within a cluster zone (find that below). Heavy fines apply for violating the rules -- Mayor Bill de Blasio said they could be up to $15,000 a day for mass gathering infractions and up to $1,000 a day each for social distancing and face-covering violations.
