At a 24-hour store just north of the East Village, hours were recently cut back, bottles for recycling are no longer being accepted and signs urge shoppers to follow social-distancing practices.

The store is only allowing 10 shoppers inside at a time. One of the chief ways the highly contagious virus is spread is through large gatherings of people.
