COVID-19

Are You in a Cluster Zone? Here Are the Maps — and a Quick Guide to the Rules

NBC Universal, Inc.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo mapped out cluster zones in Brooklyn and Queens, as well as those in Rockland, Orange and Broome counties, color coding areas by risk.

The red shaded areas see full COVID restrictions reimposed, while orange zoned areas see lesser restrictions, though schools still switch all-remote. Yellow shaded areas have more leeway but some capacity caps are reinstated.

Here are the rules by color code. Below that, you'll find the 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.
