Coronavirus closings: These are the services still open in New York

In New York, where there are over 7,000 diagnosed cases of the novel coronavirus, 100% of the state's workforce will be ordered to stay home except for those providing essential services.

"Only essential businesses can have workers commuting to the job or on the job," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday, stressing that this rule "will be enforced."

Everyone else must "remain indoors to the greatest extent" possible, he said.

Those working in the news, finance, insurance, accounting and defense and national security-related operations are exempt, as well as those working at homeless shelters, food banks and other human services providers.

Construction workers, electricians and plumbers are also except.
