States Take Steps to Stop Virus Spread

(NewsReady.com) – Certain states are taking direct action to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. California, the most populated state, houses roughly 12% of America’s total population. New York comes in 4th place, housing just under 6% of Americans.

As such, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued an order prohibiting the gathering of groups over 250 people until the end of March. This restriction will most likely extend beyond March, too, as more efforts are taken to curb the spread of the illness.

Additionally, entities like Disneyland, casinos, theaters, and other theme parks are currently exempt from this rule due to “unique circumstances,” though Newsom is still in contact with them.

However, Disney World in Florida is temporarily shutting down.

On the other side of the country in New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo implemented a ban on gatherings of over 500 people beginning Friday at 5 p.m. EDT. In addition, establishments that hold less than 500 individuals will need to halve their total capacity. Hospitals, nursing homes, and mass transit, among other areas, are currently exempt from the ban.

These are just a few of the measures taken to get the spread COVID-19 under control. The idea is that fewer congregations of people will slow the coronavirus and eventually, curtail it all together.
