A health committee chairperson and infectious disease experts side with the Governor on the topic.

The Mayor is just enforcing a policy that was put in place at the beginning of the school year.

While this was a surprise to many, the Mayor had been warning that this was likely enough to happen that he suggested people have plans in place.

The state has effectively canceled Thanksgiving too by limiting private gatherings.

Significant portions of this were communicated on twitter first.

The way this new process is framed and spoken of is reminiscent of New Zealand before they have established isolation camps for non compliant travelers.

Across the other ocean, the UK government has decided to institute another, now month long, lockdown.

As there is a minimum 3 day quarantine associated with this, even if you are negative, this should eliminate a significant portion of business travel.

One of the best games of 2013 was Papers, Please.

Cuomo believes New Yorkers should be proud of this.
