LOS
ANGELES – The Los Angeles Unified School District announced on Friday
it was shutting down schools from Monday, saying it hoped to provide
‘learning opportunities’ remotely. All bars and nightclubs that do
not serve food to shut down over virus fears. Restaurant meals are
banned, although staff may still prepare food for delivery or
takeout. There is no general ban on travelling, although county
officials say people should ‘avoid non-essential travel’. California
governor Gavin Newsom has imposed a statewide ban on gatherings of
250 people or more, with smaller events required to enforce a 6ft
safety distance. Gyms, fitness centres and bowling alleys have also
been shut down in Los Angeles, while grocery stores and cafeterias in
medical facilities can remain open. Los Angeles county has 94 virus
cases with one death.

NEW
YORK CITY – Starting on Monday, all public school buildings in New
York City have been shut until spring recess, which does not end
until April 20. All outdoor and indoor events with 50 or more people
have been banned by city authorities. Gatherings with 49 people or
fewer are advised to fill up less than half of their venue, in order
to encourage ‘social distancing’ between guests. Restaurants, bars
and cafes may only serve food for takeout and delivery, while
nightclubs have been closed. There have been 463 confirmed cases in
New York City, and seven deaths.

SAN
FRANCISCO – a ‘shelter in place’ order which came into effect
yesterday and says that gatherings outside the home are ‘generally
prohibited’. Prohibited any travel on ‘foot, bicycle, scooter,
motorcycle, automobile, or public transit’ unless essential.
Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a misdemeanor
punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both’. Shops and businesses that
are not deemed ‘essential’ will have to close, although that
definition stretches beyond food and medication to banks, dry
cleaners and car repair shops. All schools in the San Francisco
Unified School District have been closed until at least April 3. All
bars and restaurants are also closed, although restaurants can
continue to provide delivery and takeaway services. Gyms and
recreation facilities have also been closed. San Francisco has 40
confirmed cases, with no deaths.

CHICGAO
– Chicago’s public schools are closed from today until at least the
end of the month over coronavirus fears. Universities and childcare
facilities have not been ordered to close, although some are doing so
voluntarily. Shut down bars and restaurants across the whole state,
including Chicago. The state of Illinois has also ordered a ban on
public gatherings of 50 people or more, a tighter limit than
California but not as strict as Trump’s recommendation of ten.
Chicago restaurants will still be allowed to offer delivery and
drive-thru services. Chicago has confirmed 49 virus cases, with no
deaths.
