Time to Keep Focused
It has now been over four weeks that you have been sheltering in place, and during this time, over 1 Million Americans have tested positive for the virus, and 59,266 of our citizens have died.
And now that the weather is starting to get nice out, and the infection curves are slowing down in most places, people are getting antsy to get out for some sense of normalcy and to get businesses restarted again.
With this in mind, our biggest concern currently is that folks will start to get complacent about physical distancing and wearing PPE to protect themselves when out and about. If we are not careful, it wouldn't be that hard to see resurgences in various locales since the virus is still out there and hasn't gone away.
Virologists are very concerned that if this happens during the fall, the combination of new Covid cases and the seasonal flu hitting at the same time could overwhelm medical resources much more drastically than this spring.
Our best advice to you is to continue to mask up and protect yourself if you do start to venture forth, and stay away from other people as much as possible, including in stores, at the office, in elevators and on mass transit. I know this will be a pain in the butt and hard to do, but it really is the best way to stay safe and healthy, especially in the (still) hot zone of NYC.
