New York Governor Issues Order Allowing Couples to Be Legally Married Via Zoom

• Good News Network

Since thousands of couples have been forced to cancel, postpone, or adapt their wedding plans during the COVID-19 outbreaks, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has made it easier for nuptials to tie the knot.

This weekend, the governor announced that New Yorkers will now be able to obtain marriage licenses remotely. Not only that, state clerks will be allowed to perform ceremonies over video conferences.

"There is now no excuse when the question comes up for marriage," he told reporters during his daily press briefing on Saturday. "You can do it by Zoom."
