The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards will be staged in person at the Barclays Center on Aug. 30, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced at a news conference on Monday.

Mr. Cuomo said the 36-year-old awards show would take place at the venue, in Brooklyn, albeit with a limited or no audience. Social distancing precautions and capacity limits will be in effect, MTV said in a release. The company said it will continue to “closely follow” the guidance of state and local government officials and its own team of medical experts.

New York City is set to enter Phase 3 of its four-stage reopening plan on July 6. That phase includes indoor dining, nail salons and other personal-care services like tattoo parlors.

The Barclays Center, like the city’s other event venues, has been shut down since March after the city canceled all cultural and sporting events to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The plaza in front of the venue has become a central gathering space for Black Lives Matter demonstrators in recent weeks.
