New Yorkers Face $500 Fine for Ignoring Social Distancing Order

New York City has been named the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, but this isn’t enough to keep people home.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that those who don’t follow social distancing order can face a fine of $250 to $500.

“You’ve been warned and warned and warned again … When we say you can go out for some exercise, we’re not saying you can linger,” de Blasio said during a press conference, Sunday. “We’re not saying you can make a day of it. We’re saying go out, get a minimum amount of exercise and go back indoors. We will be enforcing this but with understanding for the challenges that people are facing, for how new this is.”

The New York Police Department will order people to disperse if they’re caught ignoring the precautionary guidelines. If the officer’s pleas are ignored, violators will face a penalty. “We’re not going to be Draconian. We’re going to give people a chance to get used to this, but I guarantee you: we will enforce this new reality,” de Blasio continued.

NYC reportedly has over 32,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 678 deaths related to the Coronavirus. There’s a shortage of supplies for frontline workers and de Blasio told CNN they’ll be out by next week.

Pray for New York.

Drake Posts Powerful Message With First Photos Of Son Adonis

Drake misses his beautiful family.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been restricted to our respective cities and homes, making it difficult for some to connect with their loved ones, including Drake.

The Billboard’s Hot 100 honcho took to Instagram early Monday morning to pen a beautiful message, while sharing the first pictures of his 2-year-old son Adonis. In the photos, he shares a throwback picture of his mom and dad, Sandra and Dennis Graham as well as one of the mother of his son, Sophie Brussaux.

“What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy. “

Drake then goes on to speak about the power of the mind, manifestation, and intention.

“We are powerful manifestors, so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you.”

He ends to messages by writing about control.

“It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on.”

What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy. When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what is happening around us now, you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light. We are powerful manifestors , so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW…It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust. You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on. 🤍

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Rhode Island Police Are Looking for New Yorkers Seeking Refuge in Their State

Rhode Island is the first state to do what Americans are expecting from their government amidst the coronavirus pandemic that has crippled the entire world.

On Friday, Rhode Island Police began stopping cars with New York license plates and today(March 28) the National Guard will begin assisting the police in doing home searches of people who have traveled from New York and put them under mandatory quarantine.

With less than 200 cases in RI, these are some of the aggressive strategies that will be used to curb the virus and keep New Yorkers out. Currently, there are over 44,000 confirmed cases in NYC, a little less than half of the total cases in the entire country.

“Right now we have a pinpointed risk,” Governor Gina Raimondo said. “That risk is called New York City.”

Raimondo signed an executive order Thursday that applies to anyone who has been in New York during the past two weeks and through at least April 25. It doesn’t apply to public health, public safety, or health-care workers.

National Guard members will be stationed at the T.F. Green airport, Amtrak train stations and at bus stops. Neighborhood Watch and similar local organizations will be following up with people at local residences. The maximum penalty for not complying: a fine of $500 and 90 days in prison.

New York City’s Public Advocate Jumaane Williams Sends Real Information on COVID-19

New York City’s Public Advocate, Jumaane Williams is a man of the people. The Brooklynite goes out of his way to make sure that they are being treated correctly, but also are well informed. Please receive his remarks and take care of yourself.

“I know that the spread of COVID-19, and the critical measures in place to slow it, have taken a toll on all of us – our families, our neighbors, our businesses, our communities. And the reality is that this impact, this crisis, is only continuing to grow.

As many of us have heard, the Governor recently said that between 40 and 80 percent of New Yorkers will contract COVID-19. Globally, in some areas, we have seen a fatality rate of around 0.5 percent in places with the most proactive responses, in others around 3 percent with an inadequate response.

Combatting the further spread of this virus here in New York centers on two components – testing for the virus and implementing restrictive measures to reduce congestion. We are still behind where we should be, relative to the scope and stakes of this crisis.

With a low mortality and a low contract rate, experts estimate that under 20,000 lives could be lost in New York City through this crisis – a number comparable to casualties from a very bad flu. With high rates, that number could be more than 200,000 in New York City alone. While one life lost is tragic, hundreds of thousands are hard to even conceive. This is a sobering but clear call to action, one we can and must meet with urgency and purpose.

The difference between realizing the best case and the worst is us, is our actions, is our social responsibility. We can all do the right thing, following the new restrictions and imploring those we know to do the same. We can beat the projections, we can flatten the curve, we can save lives, and we have a moral obligation to do what we can.”

Make sure that you are taking care of yourself.

BREAKING NEWS: Scarface Has Tested Positive For Coronavirus

For the second time this week, a Houston rapper has come forward with the news that they have tested positive for the Coronavirus.

According to a post on Willie D Live (which can be found below) in which he was on a live feed with Mr. South Acres himself, the former Houston mayoral candidate has revealed to the public that he has tested positive for Covid-19.

Last week, Houston rapper Slim Thug came forward after testing positive for the virus. Thug used his diagnosis as a way to reach young people to inform them of their vulnerability. He contracted Covid-19 even after taking the common precautions of wearing a mask and gloves.

The novel coronavirus has ravaged the country with almost 70,000 cases and over 1,000 deaths in just the United States alone

[WATCH] Slim Thug Tells Young People to Take ‘Stay At Home’ Order Serious After Testing Positive For Coronavirus

Maybe a 6’6″ rapper that tested positive for the novel coronavirus can convince the 18-44 year olds to stay inside with it.

Slim Thug was very adamant about young people in his native H-Town and beyond to take his Covid-19 diagnosis as a lesson and stay at home to prevent a more serious spread.

Slim spoke his truth on TMZ Live today(March 25), urging everyone to take the Coronavirus danger more seriously than it has been in recent past. The City of Houston and the neighboring Harris County has seen a tremendous upsurge in Covid-19 cases over the past week.

The “Still Tippin” rapper said he was being extremely careful, donning the mask and gloves for weeks, but it didn’t stop him from contracting the virus.

Houston just issued its first mandatory “stay at home” order today.
