Broome County is hoping new controls on things like the number of people allowed to gather inside in the region for the next two weeks will help control the spread of the novel coronavirus. 

The new restrictions on business and activities for parts of Broome County falls in an area that roughly follows north of the Susquehanna River through Binghamton, west to the Tri-Cities Airport.

The map are starts in the east at Robinson Street in Binghamton, going north along the Brandywine Highway to Old State Road.  Following the shading to the west, the zone follows the north bank of the Susquehanna River through Johnson City, Endwell and Endicott, creeping north to about Taft Avenue then following Glendale Drive south to the Tri Cities Airport.

The Governor October 6 said the yellow, orange and red (most restrictive) zone designations will go into effect as early as October 7 and no later than October 9 and last a minimum of 14 days. 

Brooklyn, Queens, Orange and Rockland Counties are carved up into all the colors.  The most restrictive is the red zone cluster area where Houses of Worship are limited to 25 percent capacity, ten people maximum, schools can only teach remotely, only essential businesses are open, mass gatherings are prohibited and dining is take-out only.
