State wide curfew possibly coming update on the Coronavirus

The governors of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut have agreed to a joint set of social distancing measures to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.
All gatherings over 50 people will be banned in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. This comes a day after the CDC issued guidance to limit public gatherings to under 50 people.
All non-essential, non emergency travel for residents of the the three states will strongly be discouraged between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. each day, Cuomo said.
All bars and restaurants in New Jersey will also suspend eat-in services as of 8 p.m. Monday. After 8 p.m, they will be open for take out or delivery services only.
Essential businesses like supermarkets, gas stations, pharmacies, and medical offices will remain open, Murphy said.
Effective 8 p.m., casinos will close, along with non-essential businesses like movie theaters, gyms and racetracks. These businesses will stay closed until further notice, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. Online gaming will continue, Murphy said.
The announcement comes a day after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urged Americans to cancel or postpone events with 50 of more attendees over the next eight weeks to curb the coronavirus pandemic.

Countries closed borders, cities from New York and Los Angeles to Paris and Madrid closed bars and restaurants, schools closed more classrooms and hundreds of millions of people closed their doors on one another as the authorities took ever more drastic steps to slow the spread of the new coronavirus.
The consequences of China’s harsh measures to halt the virus — restricting the movement of about 700 million people at one point — became apparent on Monday when the government released economic data showing industrial output falling to its lowest level in decades and unemployment rising at its highest rate ever in February.

While the economic ramifications of China’s approach are still playing out, Beijing did succeed in slowing the rise of new infections, as the total number of cases outside the country has for the first time surpassed those inside it.
The Federal Reserve, seeking to steady financial markets, cut interest rates to near zero and said it would buy hundreds of billions of dollars in U.S. government debt. But global stocks still tumbled on Monday.

As the virus continues to spread across the United States, public life is increasingly shut down. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends a ban on gatherings of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks. And on Monday morning, officials said that guidance would be enforced in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
And as Americans are asked to isolate themselves, the United States has stepped up plans to isolate itself from the world, with travelers from Britain and Ireland on Monday joining the list of other European countries barred from entering the country.

But even as a patchwork of new restrictions were put in place across the country — with different states and localities charting their own course — there was growing concern that hospitals could soon be overwhelmed.
“We have an impending catastrophe when this wave of growth crashes on the hospital system,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York said in an appearance on CNN on Monday.
Within Europe, countries are closing themselves off. The Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Slovakia have all closed themselves off to foreigners. And Germany, the economic engine of the Continent, said that it would partly close its borders with five neighboring countries.
Still, the number of new cases across the Continent continues to surge, and there is growing worry that the health care systems of Spain and France could soon face the kind of dire situation playing out in Italy — where doctors have had to make grim decisions about which patients to treat.

There is a scramble across the Continent to step up production of ventilators, with leaders calling for the kind of effort seen in wartime to produce munitions.
The Spanish government warned on Monday that it would probably extend the state of emergency and keep people indoors beyond the initial period of 15 days.
Jérôme Salomon, a top official at the French health ministry, said the situation was “deteriorating very quickly.” He told France Inter radio on Monday that many people did not seem to be taking calls for social distancing seriously, and he tried to dispel the notion that the virus seriously threatens only the elderly. There are 300 to 400 people in intensive care in France, he said, and roughly half of them are under age 65.
