"Bar and restaurant owners in New York could be arrested if they break Mayor de Blasio's strict coronavirus lockdown rules and open their doors to patrons.
The action comes as New York City continues to roll out drastic measures to stop the continued spreading of COVID-19...
Patrons and owners who disobey de Blasio's executive order could be slapped with a disorderly conduct summon.
In more severe cases they could even be arrested for not complying, according to an advisory sent to the New York Police Department Thursday.
All restaurants in the Big Apple have been limited to strictly takeout or delivery orders as of 9am Tuesday due to the coronavirus outbreak, which has killed 12 people in the city."
