Gov. Cuomo: There will be no "shelter-in-place" order for NYC

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday on the New York Times' Daily podcast that he will not approve a "shelter-in-place" order for New York City, and so there will not be one.

"That is not going to happen, shelter in place, for New York City," Cuomo said. "For any city or county to take an emergency action, the state has to approve it. And I wouldn't approve shelter in place."

? New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio had told New Yorkers on Tuesday to prepare for a "shelter-in-place" order.

Some 7 million Californians in the Bay Area are currently under such an order, which prohibits them from leaving their homes except under "limited circumstances" in an effort to fight the spread of the coronavirus.
