These measures include a curfew requiring people to stay inside between 10 P.M. and 5 A.M. That doesn’t apply to people traveling to-and-from work, traveling for emergencies and to the grocery store or pharmacy. They continue a suspension on the city’s requirement for blue refuse bags.

In a press release from Mayor Rich David’s office, the measures will continue until at least May 15. That’s in line with Governor Andrew Cuomo’s guidelines.

Except for the curfew, guidelines had been set to expire on May 1.

Additional measures include suspension of parking meter enforcement and code enforcement violations in non-emergency situations, suspension of water shutoffs for non-payment, and limits on who can be in Binghamton City Hall.
