The novel coronavirus pandemic could upend the Democratic Presidential Primary set to take place in New York State next month.

New York State will not enforce its plastic bag ban, which went into effect on March 1, until at least May 15 due to the turmoil caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
The state’s Department of Environmental Conservation had initially agreed to delay enforcement of the ban until April 1 due to a lawsuit brought upon the agency by business owners negatively impacted by the new law, but will now delay it by an additional seven weeks. The legal action seeks a formal injunction to block the ban.
