Mayor Bill de Blasio: NYC Nightclubs, Movie Theaters, Bars, Concert Venues, Restaurants to Close or Be Limited

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio to Sign Executive Order: “Nightclubs, movie theaters, bars, concerts venues must all close”

On the evening of March 15, 2020 Mayor of NYC Bill de Blasio issued the below statement. The declaration comes on the heels of worsening numbers in the way of Coronavirus infections as well as the deaths of five New York City residents. Numerous other cities have already taken or announced steps along these lines.

New York City Mayor de Blasio:

“Our lives are all changing in ways that were unimaginable just a week ago. We are taking a series of actions that we never would have taken otherwise in an effort to save the lives of loved ones and our neighbors. Now it is time to take yet another drastic step.  The virus can spread rapidly through the close interactions New Yorkers have in restaurants, bars and places where we sit close together. We have to break that cycle.

“Tomorrow, I will sign an Executive Order limiting restaurants, bars and cafes to food take-out and delivery. Nightclubs, movie theaters, small theater houses, and concert venues must all close. The order will go into effect Tuesday, March 17 at 9:00 AM.

“This is not a decision I make lightly. These places are part of the heart and soul of our city. They are part of what it means to be a New Yorker. But our city is facing an unprecedented threat, and we must respond with a wartime mentality.

“We will come through this, but until we do, we must make whatever sacrifices necessary to help our fellow New Yorkers.”
