Hawley asks Cuomo to allow religious institutions to open early

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia), has signed a letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo asking him to reconsider allowing religious institutions to open and host services earlier than previously indicated. With Western New York leading the charge to reopen the state, Hawley understands the value these religious institutions have to the community, and how supportive it can be knowing these institutions are readily available

“If we follow the proper procedures – adequate distancing, wearing face coverings, and remaining hygienic – I think these institutions, should they choose, ought to be able to conduct services,” Hawley said. “The good spiritual health of a community can help make this transition a lot smoother for everyone.”

Assemblyman Hawley represents the 139th District, which consists of Genesee, Orleans and parts of Monroe County
