WATCH: NY Mayor de Blasio says “you have to be ready now for a full shutdown”

Monday, NY Mayor Bill de Blasio warned New Yorkers “at the current rate we’re going, you have to be ready now for a full shutdown, a pause, like we had back at the end of the spring.”

He added “folks should start making those adjustments now and get ready to work remotely.”

Tuesday, de Blasio told Wolf Blitzer during an interview “We’re going to need a shutdown, and I think the sooner the better. I suggested Christmas as sort of an obvious point. When the shopping’s over, and you know, a lot of things are closed down at that point anyway, it’s a very good time to stop activity. But, if it was something the state wanted to do even sooner, I would certainly support it as well.”
