It's going to be a disaster tomorrow  :(
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

You'll survive.

I'm more worried about the coronavirus right now.

But I definitely do plan on moving out of New York.
I'm not who you think I am.

Thats enforcement, not that the ban is delayed.

The groceries I know (read, the people) do not recognize any law if there's no penalty enforcement :)

I don't know about that.
I think the bag ban will be far more disruptive to my life than the coronavirus ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

From what I glean there is a lawsuit filed by a bag maker and some retailers that basically put a hold on the law being enforced. i havent seen a restraining order but the state has said it wont enforce until the lawsuit is settled, so I guess it is de facto restrained. Dont count on big retailers or supermarkets to not comply as of today.

How does this work for big retailers in malls? Is Macy's now going to give me a paper bag for 5 cents like the bags we used to get with those flimsy plastic handles that ripped before you got out of the mall?

3 out of 4 stores I’ve been to today are still using plastic bags. 1 grocery is selling their own bags 6 for .49 cents, yet the cashier put my stuff in a black bag.

I imagine they'll pass on fees, once they get hit with them. For now they're prob still using the stock they have

You’ll just have to go with biodegradable bags, made from cow dung. Cuomo’s solution is planned parenthood.
