Newark’s mayor is taking even more restrictive steps to stop the spread of coronavirus.  Ras Baraka said on a radio show that he’s ordering residents to shelter in place for a ten day period starting the day before Thanksgiving.  The mayor says he wants people to only leave their home for essentials.  In some parts of Newark, the coronavirus positivity rate has been over 30 percent recently.  Tonight and tomorrow, Newark is closing off streets in the East Ward from 8 p.m. to five a.m.  You have show ID and prove you live there or have a valid reason to be in the East Ward
