Gov. Cuomo announces new restrictions as cases in NY surge
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced on Wednesday that there will be new restrictions as COVID-19 cases surge in the state, especially in the area around New York City, and across the nation.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced on Wednesday that there will be new restrictions as COVID-19 cases surge in the state, especially in the area around New York City, and across the nation as a whole.
Cuomo made the announcement in a Wednesday phone call with reporters. He also announced the news in a tweet. The state will limit the size of indoor gatherings in private residences to 10 people and will take effect on Friday at 10 p.m.
“New York follows the science,” he wrote in a tweet. “We know indoor gatherings and parties are a major source of COVID spread. To slow the spread, NYS will limit indoor gatherings at private residences to 10 people. This limit takes effect Friday at 10pm.”
On top of the 10 person limitation in homes, restaurants, bars, and gyms will have to close shop at 10 pm. One caveat, though, is that restaurants can still sell takeout food after 10 pm but not alcoholic beverages. This will also come into effect at the same time on Friday.
Cuomo also said on Wednesday that, if these measures aren’t enough, he might further tighten the restrictions.
“If these measures aren’t sufficient to reduce the spread — we’ll turn the value more and part of that would be reducing the number of people indoor dining,” he said.
He then added, “If that doesn’t work, if these numbers keep going crazy … you will go back to a closedown,” of gyms and indoor dining.
This all comes as Thanksgiving nears and worries rise that the family-centric holiday may cause the number of cases to continue spiraling upward. Cuomo, according to Anna Gronewald at Politico, justified the move because similar restrictions have already been implemented in neighboring states.
The United States this week just surpassed 10 million COVID-19 cases, which has caused some states to bring back certain restrictions in order to curb the spread. So far, the virus has taken the lives of 240,000 Americans and of over 1.2 million people around the globe, according to Johns Hopkins University’s Coronavirus Resource Center.

Las Vegas Backyard UFO Encounter and Its Connection to Historic UFO Incidents
In a Las Vegas suburb, a family’s experience has put them into the realm of the unexplained. What started as a crashed object in their backyard and sightings of “non-human” beings has now unveiled a captivating connection to two historic UFO incidents—Trinity and Rendlesham Forest.
It was a late April night when the people of Las Vegas witnessed something extraordinary. Multiple witnesses, including law enforcement officers, observed a streak across the sky. Body cam footage from one of the responding police officers displays the spectacle. As reports flooded in from across eastern California, Nevada, and Utah, the American Meteor Society took note, hinting at a spectacle that defied easy explanation.

Responding to the call, two police officers were dispatched to investigate the strange occurrence. The body camera footage obtained from both officers captured their initial reactions, reflecting a mix of nerves and intrigue.
Conversations between officers and witnesses revealed astonishing claims, with one witness describing a “big creature” standing around 10 feet tall.
While one officer proceeded to inspect the backyard, the video footage from his body camera was redacted by Metro police due to privacy concerns, according to reports. Witnesses conveyed their belief in the sighting, despite expressing skepticism before. Simultaneously, another witness informed the police about an SUV circling the area, potentially adding another layer of mystery to the incident, according to reports.
But this was just the beginning.
As the incident unfolded, an web of connections emerged, drawing parallels to historical UFO encounters that have perplexed and fascinated humanity for decades. Among these, the Trinity Incident stands as a testament to the enduring mystery surrounding UFO phenomena.
The Trinity Incident, which transpired in, July 1945, was set against the backdrop of the world’s first atomic bomb test in New Mexico. Witnesses, present during the event, reported a peculiar sighting, a UFO defying the laws of physics, hovering near the blast. The incident became covered in secrecy due to its connection to the classified Manhattan Project. This led to the rise of speculation about extraterrestrial involvement and their interest in our technological advancements.
Fast forward to December 1980, when another chapter in UFO history was written, Rendlesham Forest, an event that unfolded near the RAF Woodbridge base in Suffolk, England. Military personnel stationed there encountered inexplicable lights and an otherworldly craft nestled amidst the forest. The Rendlesham Forest incident remains one of the most compelling UFO cases on record, captivating the world with its documented evidence, eyewitness testimonies, and subsequent investigations.
Now, as the Las Vegas incident captures global attention, trending on Twitter, its connection to these historical encounters become apparent. The connections are astonishing, a crashed object, sightings of strange beings upwards of 10 feet tall, and eyewitnesses who stand by their claims, just as those who witnessed the Trinity Incident and the events in Rendlesham Forest did.
What does this all mean?
In this connection of past and present, the Las Vegas backyard encounter serves as a gateway into the world of UFOs. It calls the worlds to explore the uncharted territories of the unknown, where the boundaries of our understanding are challenged.
As speculation continues to surround this perplexing event, the encounters with unidentified phenomena and the mention of “big creatures” with large gazing eyes, in a suburban backyard have left the community and investigators perplexed. The quest for answers in this unusual case remains ongoing, as locals ponder the possibility of an otherworldly presence.
