Cuomo scalates safey tsandardsAll “non-essential” New Yorkers are being ordered to stay home starting Sunday evening as the state looks to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday.

The governor announced Friday he will issue the “New York State on PAUSE” executive order mandating that all residents remain home and indoors “to the greatest extent to protect physical and mental health.” The action will require 100 percent of the state’s “non-essential” workforce to work from home — up from the 75 percent ordered to remain home earlier this week — the latest escalation in the state's rapidly moving efforts to stem the spread of the virus.

Grocery stores, food delivery, pharmacies, gas stations, laundromats and some other businesses will be exempted from the action. The governor’s office said it would release an updated list of “essential” workers and services later Friday.
