Online weddings now available in New York

Couples are set to be married in online weddings following a shake-up of marriage rules in New York.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Twitter that he is issuing an executive order allowing for marriage licenses to be obtained remotely and for clerks to perform ceremonies via video conference.

The move will pave the way for couples to tie the knot in spite of a state-wide lockdown in response to coronavirus.

Earlier this month, New York had more confirmed cases of COVID-19 than any single country outside of the US.
