ALBANY, N.Y. – Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced that all indoor portions of New York malls, amusement parks and bowling alleys will be temporarily closed to the public starting Thursday at 8 p.m.

Stores with exterior entrances may remain open. 

Governors from Pennsylvania, Connecticut and New Jersey are following the same protocol as part of the effort to combat coronavirus.

This comes after Cuomo mandated bars and restaurants to offer takeout and delivery options only starting Monday, March 16.

Casinos, gyms and other businesses have also closed after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised against mass gatherings of 50 people or more for the next eight weeks.
