We proceed to walk to lunch at the Food court and were told they were asked to stop serving food effective immediately. We joked around to what it could be and I was kinda scared so I tweeted the mall and asked why we were asked to leave. The response was that they had a shopper confirm they had corona and was at the mall on March 10th.

Media coverage (what I consumed through my channels)

From WHO:

SO yes March started off pretty different and with thin the last few days things keep on changing --and will probably go down in history (we are living historical times). But something to be thankful for are our leaders who are trying there best to spread health and preparedness at a nation, local and religious levels. 
Personally, I am very grateful the President from my Church who is a notable doctor which is a blessing in these times and has taught us how to a have a Christ and Church centered home if and when leaving the house isn't the best. 
On that note I hope everyone is trying to be safe and kind and acting with reason to others around us who maybe at risk.
