COVID Update: 3 States Collaborate to Shut Down Amenities

COVID Update: 3 States Collaborate to Shut Down Amenities

( – New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey announced on Monday a partnership to curb the growing number of COVID-19 cases. Starting at 8 p.m. EST on Monday night, the tri-state area will limit crowd capacity for social gatherings and recreational activities to 50 people in alignment with CDC recommendations. The governors are ordering all non-essential businesses like movie theaters, gyms, casinos, and bars to close.

There are some exceptions to this new regulation. Restaurants can offer take-out and delivery to curb a total loss of income. Supermarkets and gas stations are also exempt from the ruling.

The governors, all Democrats, said they were taking the action due to a lack of nationwide standards and federal direction.

They join California, Ohio, Illinois, and Pennsylvania in instituting some form of social gathering controls to limit the exposure to COVID-19. The goal is to flatten the curve, and social distancing is the best way to do it.
