New Jersey City Takes Virus Precautions to The Extreme with Mandatory Curfew

The world as we know it is about to change drastically for the next several weeks thanks to a novel and swiftly spreading strain of coronavirus.

COVID-19 has made landfall in the United States and is poised to continue to spread among the population for several days or longer.  The “or longer” part will all depend on just how seriously we as a nation take the threat posed by the virus, and how well we adhere to the suggestions of the CDC and the WHO.

In the New Jersey city of Hoboken, they’re taking a step further in the fight to curb COVID-19, and it has some freedom experts sounding the alarm.

Mayor Ravinder Bhalla announced the measure Saturday evening, and said the Office of Emergency Management will enforce a daily curfew from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m., where residents must remain in their homes unless there’s an emergency or they’re required to work at night.

Hoboken officials later clarified that dog-walking would also be allowed, and that the goal of the curfew was instead to prevent activities like house parties.

Of course, the mandatory curfew had more than a few Americans concerned on social media.


Are more US cities willing to follow Hoboken’s lead as the virus spreads?
