The curbs take effect at midnight on Saturday but will not affect trade, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.
Meanwhile, Illinois joined California in ordering residents to stay at home, while New York state ordered non-essential businesses to close.
About one in five Americans will soon be under a “stay at home” order.
