The New Jersey city of Hoboken is implementing a city-wide curfew and new restrictions, starting Monday, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Hoboken is located right next to New York City's Manhattan, just across the Hudson River.
Residents must stay home from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m., unless they have to work during those hours, according to a statement from Mayor Bhalla.
The statement also announced drastic new restrictions on the city's restaurants and bars, effectively banning them from serving food within their venues - meaning they can only serve food through delivery and takeout.
"All bars and restaurant establishments, with and without a liquor license, are no longer permitted to serve food within the restaurant or bar. If a bar does not currently offer food, they will no longer be permitted to operate and are no longer permitted to serve alcohol, effective March 15 at 11 a.m," said the statement.
"The time is now to enact proactive policies that will help save lives in the long run," said Bhalla in the statement. "We must all now do our part."
