New York City’s travel restrictions have become more strict over the past few days as the nation deals with the coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s everything you need to know.
New York is now limiting people who travel on Sunday and Monday to 15 minutes and 30 minutes for public transit, restaurants and bars, and is limiting those traveling on the weekends to 15 minute and 30 minute walk lengths.
In addition, the city is limiting people to only one ride-hailing service on a single vehicle on a city street for the next five days.
And while most New Yorkers still have access to the subway and bus system, the transit agencies that serve the area have begun suspending services, limiting travel to a handful of stops, including JFK, Penn Station and Times Square.
According to Bloomberg, the New York Department of Transportation (NYCT) says it has suspended all public transportation, including public transportation through Manhattan, Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.
It’s unclear whether New Yorkers who plan to visit the city will be able to use public transportation during the pandemic, which began on March 3 and is expected to hit New York state later this month.
New York City has also announced it will temporarily ban the purchase of any food and beverage in New York and will temporarily restrict the use of all personal electronic devices.
The city also announced that all of its major banks, including Wells Fargo and Barclays, will be required to close at 5 p.m. local time on Friday to prevent the spread of the coronaviirus.
Travel restrictions have also been imposed for the weekend and Monday in Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, Nashville, Miami Beach, Philadelphia, and Seattle.

The outbreak in Miami led to the death of 2,100 people.
In Atlanta, more than 1,100 deaths have been reported.
In Seattle, about 1,200 people have died.
New Yorkers in Los Angeles and New Orleans have been affected by the pandemaker.
