Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Legalinsurrection.com: “Cuomo Orders New York to Close Non-Essential Businesses as Wuhan Coronavirus Cases Top 7,000”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered all non-essential businesses across the state to close to help slow the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.

The order does not affect hospitals, grocery stores, and pharmacies. Cuomo did not give a timeline, but mentioned it “could last for months.”

Even as he told New Yorkers to stay indoors, Mr. Cuomo added that if they did go out — whether to do essential shopping or to exercise — they must stay six feet away from each other.

The governor also announced strict rules for people over 70 and those who have underlying illnesses, allowing them to go outside only for solitary exercise, requiring them to wear masks when in the company of others and barring them from visiting households with multiple people, among other requirements.

The businesses must close at 8 pm ET on Saturday. The order includes “barber shops, hair and nail salons, tattoo or piercing parlors, and other personal care businesses.” Cuomo already ordered “movie theaters, gyms and casinos to close and limited restaurants and bars to delivery and takeout service only.”
