NEW YORK — The NYPD said it’s cracking down on all gatherings where social distancing is not being practiced, including funeral processions and religious functions.

Over the weekend, police used sirens and played social distancing messages over their PA system in Borough Park, trying to break up a large gathering for a funeral in the Hasidic Jewish community where mourners stood around, not following social distancing guidelines.

And in Williamsburg, there was a funeral procession with hundreds of people where mourners were standing shoulder to shoulder, not 6-feet apart.

“I don’t care if you’re Orthodox, Jewish, Catholic, Christian, Muslim, I don’t care. It’s no not about religious observation,” said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Monday.

The amount that can be fined for those not social distancing was increased to $1,000.9.

The NYPD released a statement to PIX11 that reads in part:

“The NYPD will continue to enforce social distancing and any large gathering — including services — that put both members of the public and officers at risk. These gathering must cease immediately.”

Mayor Bill deBlasio also weighed in Monday and said he understands it’s hard for people to put a halt on traditions, but they have to for now.

“I have spoken to leaders of the community previously and I am going to do that again. We are going to be very clear with people: we can not tolerate this in this moment in history.”

Officers were able to break up the crowds over the weekend.

According to the NYPD, most New Yorkers are following social distancing, but now officers are going to be even stricter in their enforcement.
