NYC to close schools

New York City will close public schools, and as U.S. cases of the new coronavirus climb well past 3000, states and cities are ordering bars and restaurants to close in an effort to encourage social distancing and try to stem the outbreak.

A spokesperson for Cuomo made the announcement about schools on Sunday evening.

Ohio governor Mike DeWine announced Sunday he has ordered all bars and restaurants in the state to shut down service beginning at 9 p.m. this evening.

“How long will this order be in effect? We don’t, frankly, know,” DeWine told reporters Sunday. “It will be in effect for as long as it needs to.”
