New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio revealed today he is strongly considering a shelter-in-place order for New York City’s 8.2 million residents.

However, the nation’s most prominent far-left mayor and onetime longshot presidential candidate made waves yesterday by working out at his favorite gym, as New York state prepared to close all gyms over growing coronavirus concerns.

Per the Washington Free Beacon:

De Blasio, a former Democratic presidential candidate, was spotted entering the public YMCA gym in Brooklyn on Monday morning. While de Blasio completed his workout, New York governor Andrew Cuomo announced the closure of all gyms, restaurants, and bars in the state beginning at 8 p.m. Monday.

Former top advisers skewered de Blasio for setting a poor example for fellow New Yorkers amid an outbreak that has so far infected 463 people in the city. Rebecca Katz, a former special adviser to the mayor, called him “inexcusable and reckless.” Another former adviser, Jonathan Rosen, piled on, saying the Democrat was “pathetic” and “self-involved.”

De Blasio has declared a state of emergency in his city, arguing that the United States must adopt a “war-footing” to deal with the pandemic. As part of his response, he closed down the city’s public schools and restricted restaurants to take-out only. He also urged city residents to stay indoors.

Less than 12 hours before the mayor attended the gym, the city’s health department said that “everyone in NYC should act as if they have been exposed to coronavirus.” De Blasio’s spokeswoman defended the mayor’s visit in a statement, saying that the mayor was attending the gym for “one last time.”

Top health experts haven’t come to a consensus on whether everyone in America should avoid their gym, but all agree that it is a time to be very cautious. If you do go to the gym, maintain a distance of at least six feet, disinfect surfaces before and after you touch them, and wash your hands regularly.

  1. Easy to see that DiBlasio is rooting for the virus and not us people, just like the NYTimes and reporter Gay who are about to get lawsuits on them for mangling what Trump said to the state governors about medical equipment – holding war against the president who is doing all he can with great success to not just slow down but combat this virus since he’s already urged production of a test vaccine instead of the year it would’ve taken is Treason and Espionage in this time of Crisis in the Nation, but NYTimes and Gay think they can get away with Omission since they always have.

  2. I’m expecting Pritzker, the IL govermer of to soon close all gyms and health clubs, along with his other measures that alteady are causing greater problems than they solve. I really believe this will continue much longer tha 2 weeks. They say 2 weeks at a time to keep people from really freaking out. These restrictions will surely continue much much longer.
