The order goes into effect at midnight March 23, and lasts until April 6.
The order includes the closure of gyms and exercise centers and suspend in-person services.
Lee has also prohibited more than 10 people from gathering in any one place and encourages people to spend time with loved ones through electronic and virtual communication methods instead of in person.
