NEWARK, NJ — Most of the residents of New Jersey’s most populated city understand why it’s important to stay at home while the new coronavirus spreads. But for the few who don’t, Newark’s citywide shelter-in-place order should serve as a big wake-up call, local officials say.

On Wednesday night, Mayor Ras Baraka announced that the entire city is being ordered to shelter in place. It’s an expansion from last weekend’s order, which put restrictions on three alleged hotspots of virus activity.

Google won't hold a virtual I/O this year

  Google won't hold a virtual I/O this year Google has officially cancelled its I/O 2020 developer conference. The company announced today the event won't be taking place "in any capacity this year." When Google announced its first change of plans earlier this month, the company said it would "explore other ways to evolve Google I/O to best connect with our developer community." At the time, it seemed like the company would host online presentations and workshops, much like Apple announced it would do at WWDC later this year. However, in response to California's recent shelter in place order amid the ongoing coronavirus epidemic, the company now won't hold the event at all.

There are a few exceptions, such as going to the supermarket, picking up “essentials” at local stores or the pharmacy, visiting the doctor, walking dogs or “stepping out and get fresh air” in your yard or on your porch.

Exceptions are also being made for “essential employees,” Baraka said.

Children need to be accompanied by an adult, and people should only leave their homes in pairs. In instances where that is not possible – such as single parent/grandparent households – then the most should be a family of no more than five at a time, officials said.

The order became effective Wednesday at 8 p.m.

Newark's shelter-in-place decree is similar to Gov. Phil Murphy’s recent "stay-at-home" order, which closed many businesses in the state, banned public gatherings and required employers to let people work from home when possible.

Last week, Newark officials began a mandatory 8 p.m. curfew in the city, which requires all non-essential businesses to close at that time. It lasts "until further notice."

Newark residents should also practice “social distancing” and keep at least 6 feet apart from each other. That goes for any businesses that are allowed to remain open, officials said.

“We have to take this situation very, very seriously,” Baraka said Wednesday. “The majority of our residents understand this and are following the rules. But some are not and continue to congregate on the streets and not maintain proper social distance. Those people are putting their own health at risk, as well everyone they come into contact with.”
