New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced more restrictions on public gatherings Monday morning amid concerns of the coronavirus pandemic.

Beginning at 8 p.m. Monday, restaurants and bars will close for on premise service and move to take-out services only.

Additionally, theaters, gyms and casinos will be temporarily closed beginning 8 p.m. March 16.

Lastly, crowd capacity for social gatherings will be limited to 50 people. Effective 8 p.m. March 16.

Cuomo says this move will help impede the spread of the coronavirus.

The announcement came alongside the governors of New Jersey and Connecticut. Those states will take identical measures.

The closures will be in effect until further notice. Other States are doing the same such as PA.

Anyone recall the word "speakeasy"?  It's from when they last closed the bars.

Yeah, right.  It's really due to the shortage of toilet paper.  Can you imagine St. Patrick's Day without TP for the bunghole?

Stay home if you can, and minimize contact with others if you must got outside or travel locally. Avoid all non-essential long distance travel. Stay a safe distance (6 to 10 feet)away from others in public, wash your hands every chance you get, and avoid bringing your hands in contact with your face as much as possible. Forget about the green beer!

Where I live in Québec a whole range of services have been closed down, from schools and universities to public pools, gyms, theatres and bars. Restaurants are restricted to 50% of capacity and many have voluntarily closed except for take-out or home delivery orders, which must be paid via credit or debit card, no cash allowed.

People in my age group have been told to stay home and minimize our local travel to essential tasks only. The civil servants at city, provincial and federal levels have been told to work from home except for essential services.

The one thing the feds in Canada have not done is restrict entry at airports because over a quarter of a million Canadians are out of the country. Many are already stranded because they did not respect the recall notice and the countries they are in have closed their borders. COVID-19 screening at entry is limited at best, causing a lot of friction between local, provincial and federal authorities. Pandora's box has been opened (origin of the term pandemic). The only way to limit this health crisis is by hunkering down and waiting it out. No one likes to be restricted in what they do, but this situation is different.

Go to the World Health Organization, look at the reported numbers, and do the math to understand how this is expanding exponentially world-wide and what the death rate will be if we don't do our civic duty.

The spread of this virus is due to individual self-interest and ignorance of the facts.

Well said, what I hate to the point of wanting to scream are the people that keep trying to compare this to the flu.

agree with @GrandAdmiral_2016 and @BrushWolf, those of us in the united States need only to look to Europe and Asia to see what is coming.  I was like many and suspect of the early info coming out of China, but take a look at Italy (and by all accounts northern Italy has great hospitals) to see what is happening.  While I chaffe a bit at the inconvenience and even infraction on my "civil liberties" this is a time to act.  My mind has shifted dramatically the past few weeks on this, I'd ask if you are reading and disagree to dig a little into various accounts and sources and be open to the possibility that you are incorrect.

Holy corned beef and cabbage batman.

The influenza pandemic of 1918-19 killed between 50 and 100 million people around the world, more than died in the battles of World War I. In the United States, the hardest-hit city was Philadelphia, where the spread of the disease was spurred by what was meant to be a joyous event: a parade.

Writing in Pennsylvania History: A Journal of Mid-Atlantic Studies, the historian Thomas Wirth explains what happened: “On September 28, despite the increased infiltration of the disease among the civilian population, a rally for the Fourth Liberty Loan Drive proceeded with minimal debate about the repercussions for public health.” The head of Philadelphia’s Naval Hospital told the Public Ledger in the days before the parade: “There is no cause for further alarm. We believe we have it well in hand.” So, the parade went forward. “In the streets of downtown Philadelphia 200,000 people gathered to celebrate an impending allied victory in World War I. Within a week of the rally an estimated 45,000 Philadelphians were afflicted with influenza.”

“At first, Philadelphia’s epidemic did not differ from that in other major American cities,” the historian James Higgins writes in Pennsylvania Legacies. “Yet by the first week of October, roughly five weeks into the outbreak, Philadelphia’s mortality rate accelerated in a climb unmatched by any city in the nation—perhaps by any major city in the world.” And that spike is attributed to the patriotic event, one of several Liberty Loan rallies organized in Philadelphia to raise money for the war. This time it was joined by a baneful guest: “The virus, an invisible presence at the parade, had enjoyed an unprecedented opportunity to spread throughout the city and in the coming days announced its presence in a skyrocketing wave of sickness and death.”

Soon hospitals were at capacity, as were the morgues and cemeteries. In a study published in 2009 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on the incidence curves of the 1918 epidemic in Philadelphia, researchers note that, 72 hours following the parade, all the beds in the city’s 31 hospitals were filled and by “the evening of October 3, the closure of schools, churches, and places of public amusement was adopted by the Philadelphia city council.”

In six weeks, 12,000 were dead. The smell of bodies left to rot in homes while they waited to be removed permeated the streets. The spread of the virus was exacerbated by existing conditions in the city: a booming population drawn by the wartime industries, a density of housing, and a lack of sanitation services and safe drinking water in these working-class neighborhoods.

Yeah, apparently there is no white bread left in the state of PA, and trying to get anything last night because of crowding and all other days one of the only things left because of people hoarding is lunchables. Given were in the general epicenter of the PA outbreak we got to get inventive with food cause we couldn't get much from any store because people were buying 1 cart load of toilet paper and 3 of food stuffs. Because we were screwed on money moving because it took longer than it should have already went from December to Mid/Late February on 1 meal a day, 2 if I was lucky and basically going to have to do that again which is great for my health because while a person may be smart, people are stupid. 

Agent K was right.

Not really. The reason it spread from China to the rest of the world was people flying.

No, it's not.

Jan. 22, 2020 - SEATTLE — Public health officials here are monitoring at least 16 people who were in close contact with a man from a nearby suburb, the nation's first person infected with a new global respiratory virus after a trip to China.
https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/health/2020/01/22/washington-officials-track-infected-mans-travels-counter-new-virus/4547358002/

Seattle is located in King County. Here is where we are at now.

March 15, 2020 - King County cases have now grown to 420 from 387 on Saturday, including two more deaths, which brings the death toll to 37.

If you think you are safe because you don't live in an impoverished area you are mistaken.

It's beyond me why people think that they have to raid local stores for food. I just got in a Amazon food order this afternoon and the Schwan's truck came by too. I had to move all of the non-food items out of the pantry to make room for all of it.

Maybe keep some rolls in the truck for a little side-hustle?

That is inside Seattle's city borders and this outbreak in King County started outside the city.
