NEW YORK (AP) - A new poll says most New York state residents say they are either quarantining themselves or social-distancing.
The Siena College poll reported that 14% of New Yorkers said they were under mandatory quarantine and 42% were self-quarantining.
Another 39% of the respondents said they were not quarantining, but cutting back on going out and being around others through social distancing.
Just over half of New Yorkers, 51 percent, are concerned with being able to meet their monthly financial
obligations and 37 percent of all New Yorkers, 46 percent of those 18-34 years of age and 48 percent of those
35-49 years of age, are concerned with being laid off.
Nearly 60 percent of New York resients say they are also concerned with their retirement plans and investments losing value.
More than half of young people and New Yorkers making less than $50,000 also say they are worried they may not be able to afford food during this time.
In New York City, another emergency field hospital is under construction at a park in the Bronx.
