In the meantime, the Governor has scheduled three teleconferences for today. She will be speaking with President Trump, Governor Cuomo and others. The first will be at noon Eastern time. The other two will be at 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm Eastern time. But regardless of the time, the Governor will still be speaking to the public. The briefing should be live streamed at www.gov.sgov .
The Governor had previously asked people who play in casinos to take a break, stay at home, and avoid bars. The Governor's orders change and expand that advice. She is telling restaurant owners to close and companies like Amazon to ask all employees to work from home.

For everyone worried about COVID-19 we have a piece of good news: The Governor has ordered all casinos and bars to close as soon as possible. The first order was to close all casinos and bars in Northern Italy. Now it's Alaska, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, D.C. She has discussed with the President and President's orders will be delivered soon. Nevada and Oregon casinos have already closed their premises and are being cleaned. Washington D.C., Minnesota and Kansas are next.
It is time to renew our spirit of activism. If we are to succeed, we must not content ourselves with being critical observers. Our criticism must take the form of action. If society is to be saved, each of us has a role to play. We need to learn to analyze what is happening in our society and to devise programs of action. We need to find out what it takes to change things. We must stop waiting for someone else to clean up the mess. We are the ones who will need to get the ball rolling, and we must do it without wasting time.
We should understand that, before reaching the point of no return, we had been trying to ignore the problem, to deny its existence or to rationalize it; we had been trying to tolerate it or to change it. Our collective efforts have been unsuccessful, so we now know we need to take action against this unacceptable situation. What can we do? In order to organize our society, we must be able to visualize our new world. This requires having adequate information about the situation in which we find ourselves, and this information must be shared. We need to understand where we are and where we want to go. We must take stock of the accumulated knowledge and experience, so as to be able to identify the pitfalls that must be avoided. 827ec27edc
