Authorities in New York ordered the cancellation of a wedding that could have brought together more than 10,000 people in violation of rules to fight the spread of the coronavirus, Governor Andrew Cuomo said Saturday.

Multiple news reports, including in the New York Times, New York Post and Daily Beast, indicated the location of the planned wedding was a synagogue belonging to the Satmar Hasidic sect.

The Rockland County sheriff’s office warned authorities about the wedding planned for Monday in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
