NEW YORK  – At 8 p.m. last night New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo put New York State on pause.


On March 16, Cuomo ordered that all bars, gyms, and movie theaters close to prevent the spread of the virus. As of Sunday night, that order has been updated to state that all non-essential work forces are to work from home and businesses close until further notice.

This order has left countless residents unemployed, and worried about an uncertain future. Norwich resident Ashley Dreyer is facing unemployment after the gym she worked at was ordered to close.

“There was no warning. No time to prepare. This was my only source of income, and now it's gone,” said Dreyer. 

According to the NYS department of health, this 10-point executive order is to “assure safety for everyone.”
