Putnam County Sheriff calls NY gathering restrictions unenforceable

While not encouraging large gatherings this Thanksgiving, Putnam County Sheriff Robert Langley says he's uncertain what the correct number for safety would be.  He encouraged families to make the determination on their own based on if the home is large enough, if the guests at lower risk of contracting COVID-19, where are they travelling from, and if they likely have been exposed to coronavirus.  New York's Governor has limited non-essential indoor gatherings at a private residence to 10 people.  Rather than issuing orders, which Langley says are, at best, impossible to enforce, and, at worst, unconstitutional, the Governor should encourage residents to be cautious, use good judgment in weighing risk factors, and protect the vulnerable.  As Sheriff, Langley sees a better use for resources than to disrupt families celebrating this Thanksgiving.
