New York Extends Order Against Gatherings, Nonessential Business

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday said nonessential businesses must remain closed and that gatherings will be banned until April 15 as the death toll from the new coronavirus surged over the weekend.

Almost 450 people around the state died from the disease between Friday and Sunday, Mr. Cuomo said at an afternoon briefing, bringing the overall toll above 1,000—the highest for any state in the nation. The total includes a New York Police Department detective as well as several health care workers.
