Health officials in New Jersey are warning residents to stay away from hospitals, schools and other locations where the virus is spreading.
Health officials in the Garden State have already begun a curfew that will be in place until Wednesday.
The curfew is part of a state-wide plan to curb the spread of the virus.
The virus, which is transmitted by respiratory secretions, has been detected in about 3,000 people in New England states and in the District of Columbia.
More than 3,200 people have died.
More than 700 people have tested positive for the coronovirus.

New York City, with a population of nearly 26 million, is also home to a large population of New Yorkers infected with the coronvirus, which was first detected in Brooklyn in September.
