People in New York can now get married remotely over video due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"We are today signing an executive order allowing people to get their marriage licenses remotely and also allowing clerks to perform ceremonies over video," Melissa DeRosa, the secretary to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said at a news conference today.
"There's now no excuse when the question comes up for marriage. No excuse. You can do it by Zoom –– it's yes or no," Cuomo joked.
