NYC Mayor de Blasio: coronavirus road closures and curfew possible, but no travel restrictions yet

By Anna Sanders, New York Daily News | Mar 16, 2020 | (thanks to Pamela hall);

Coronavirus could force a curfew or road closures in New York City — but Mayor de Blasio said Monday the outbreak hasn’t made those travel restrictions necessary yet.

“Everything’s on the table,” de Blasio said on NY1.

“No, we are not closing down transportation, we’re not closing down roads or bridges, we are not putting a curfew into effect or travel restrictions – TODAY. At any point in this trajectory, we may change that depending on the facts.”

An emergency declaration de Blasio made in response to the coronavirus pandemic last week also gives the mayor the power to restrict travel to and from New York City and within the five boroughs, as well as institute a curfew.

De Blasio said on FOX 5 Monday there’s “no immediate plan” to close roads. He added that NYC hasn’t decided whether to suspend Alternate Side Parking during the outbreak yet.

There were 329 confirmed cases of the deadly coronavirus in New York City as of Sunday night, prompting de Blasio to shut down public schools until at least April 20.

The mayor will order all bars, restaurants and cafes to only offer delivery or pickup beginning Tuesday at 9 a.m. Nightclubs, movie theaters, small theater houses and concert venues will also be forced to close.
