英国女王伊丽莎白二世将不会以任何特别的方式庆祝自己的94岁寿辰,她已经要求取消礼炮致敬活动,原因是在全国抗击新冠肺炎疫情之时这一做法不合时宜。

仪式性礼炮即在伦敦的不同地点发射空弹,王室通常以此方式来庆祝纪念日、生日等特殊日子。

4月21日是女王的生日。这将是女王登基68年来海德公园和伦敦塔等地首次不会鸣响礼炮为她庆生。

Britain is in its fourth week of a national lockdown, with businesses forced to close and citizens ordered to stay at home.

>People can get married remotely
纽约人结婚可远程登记

New York residents will be able to remotely obtain a wedding license, so they won't break coronavirus social distancing protocols.
纽约州居民将可以远程登记结婚,从而不会违反新冠肺炎社交距离指南。

Melissa DeRosa, secretary to the governor, announced the executive order during Gov Andrew Cuomo's daily press briefing on Saturday.
18日在州长安德鲁·科莫的例行新闻发布会上,州长秘书梅利莎·德罗莎宣布了这项行政命令。

在被记者问及纽约州是否会采取措施帮助婚姻登记时,科莫向德罗莎询问,纽约州是否有相关计划。

"We are today signing an executive order allowing people to get their marriage licenses remotely and also allowing clerks to perform ceremonies over video," DeRosa said.
德罗莎说:"我们今天就会签署一项行政命令,允许人们远程登记结婚,工作人员也可以通过视频来主持仪式。"

Cuomo laughed in response to the announcement, before quipping: "Video marriage ceremonies. There is now no excuse when the question comes up for marriage."
科莫对此笑称:"通过视频就能结婚,现在没有任何借口不结婚了。"

Prior to Cuomo's announcement, many marriage bureaus were closed or unable to issue licenses in the state.
