New Yorkers are about to get a "Shelter in Place" order

Recommended Posts

Feel free to move but thought this was timely and important for our NY residents who have been coming here for a distraction from the news.  This one's important.

New Yorkers should prepare for a “shelter-in-place” order in the coming days as local officials try to contain the fast-moving coronavirus that’s spreading throughout the U.S., New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday, adding that a decision will be made in the next 48 hours.

“We are all deeply concerned ... this is quite clear this is a fast growing crisis,” he said at a press conference. “All New Yorkers, even though a decision has not been made by the city or the state, I think that all New Yorkers should be prepared right now for the possibility of a shelter-in-place order.”

There are now 814 confirmed cases in New York City, he said, adding that 248 are in Queens, 277 in Manhattan, 157 in Brooklyn, 96 in the Bronx and 36 in Staten Island. Seven people in the city have died so far, he said.

This is breaking news. Please check back for updates.

Understood.  I posted it here simply because an order to stay in an apartment or current location is a physical limitation, not a "sense of panic" or thing to wonder about.  It's a policy.

Does this mean the wait for Chinese food delivery will be more than 5 minutes?

It's a known fact that his TB12 regimen kills coronavirus.

I can see the tagline now:

"Cheat death with TB12!"

The bars are closed so I'm already sheltering in place.  

Me and my friends were a little distraught at the prospect of our local joint closing....

Just have the Jets hook up a couple of private showings of Sonic the Hedgehog.  Then bring all our low cost free agents in to wow them with this complete ingenuity.  Totally won't be expecting it.  Not like Macc with that stupid cake.

How are they going to enforce this?   

NYPD will issue you a ticket.  Then you look down and realize it's actually a ticket to a Jets game.

Keeping "minute" singular earned you the POTY rep from me.

I gave laughing rep but part of me wonders if that really is the way they'll enforce this.
