The city of Rochester is preparing for a possible “shelter in place” order that would make staying at home mandatory with some conditions. 

This type of order is under consideration by local leaders across the country as the coronavirus outbreak continues. Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered that all executive orders relating to the outbreak break go through the Department of Health first.

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren said she’s discussed what that would look like in Rochester with Foodlink, Monroe County and the Rochester City School District. A top concern is figuring how people can stay in their homes and have access to food.
