On Tuesday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that he is seriously considering a "shelter in place" order, which would quarantine all the city residents thanks to the coronavirus outbreak.
"We're absolutely considering that," de Blasio told CNN's hostess Alisyn Camerota.
A "shelter in place" order would mandate that all city residents stay in their homes but would fall short of the complete lockdown that is in place in Italy, where people need permission to leave their homes.
At a news conference Tuesday afternoon, de Blasio urged New York City residents to be prepared.
“Even though a decision has not been made by the city or by the state, I think that all New Yorkers should be prepared right now for the possibility of a shelter-in-place order,” de Blasio said, adding that the “very, very difficult” decision would be made within 48 hours.
Mayor Bill de Blasio says he is “absolutely considering” a shelter in place order for New York City residents just like the one instituted in California’s Bay Area on Monday.https://t.co/Od9ItxTsoq pic.twitter.com/a3tf8dtYw6

On Monday, six San Francisco-area counties issued a “shelter in place” order. The order is in place until April 7 and encompasses more than 6.7 million people. Residents are still allowed to leave to their homes to shop for essentials, obtain health care assistance and provide for family and friends. They can exercise outside as long as they remain six feet away from people who don’t live with them.
Many states have shuttered bars, restaurants and other places of leisure such as movie theaters as local and federal officials struggle to contain the virus. The Trump administration Monday recommended that people not gather in groups larger than 10. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that there be no gatherings of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks.
At this point we have had more than 4,000 confirmed cases in the COVID-19 in the Unites States.
