Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert said yesterday that Douglas County may be moving soon to restrict crowds to less than 50 people.  Large events like Saint Patrick's Day activities scheduled for Tuesday are a concern because of potential coronavirus exposure.  The Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium has announced it will be closed through the end of the month starting today, and Stothert said the city's public libraries and community centers are also closing immediately.
