Many restaurants are still open for delivery or takeout. | @what_did_jp_eat

New York City is on lockdown. Earlier this month, Governor Andrew Cuomo told all New Yorkers to stay inside as much as possible and enacted new restrictions on businesses and gatherings of people to help curb the spread of coronavirus. Nonessential businesses are required to keep all workers at home.

In the midst of the pandemic, grocery stores and restaurants are still in operation, but with social distancing in effect, eateries have switched over to delivery or pick-up only.
