With no clear indication as to when they can return to business-as-usual, some bars and restaurants in New York City are boarding up their windows and doors, reports Al Jazeera's Radmilla Suleymanova.
Laundromats, coffee shops, and even doctor's offices - open last week as essential businesses - have since closed or cut back hours.
The sidewalks are lightly dotted with people waiting for their take-out orders - a New York habit even the ugliest of pandemics cannot seem to break. A growing number are clad in pale blue surgical masks and cloth coverings.
Those delivering lunches and dinners on bicycles, unloading packages off trucks and hauling boxes into groceries rule the streets. Once relegated to the shadows, they are now centre stage and this city's lifeline.
