New York remains on PAUSE as it continues to combat the Coronavirus pandemic. The order has been extended until May 15. New Yorkers continue to do their part by staying home and self-isolating. For people that provide essential services, and those taking the occasional trip for household supplies or groceries, maintaining social distancing is important. Health officials are also recommending the use of face coverings when in public. Do not purchase surgical masks. Healthcare workers need them. Instead, some simple household items can be used to make face coverings that can help slow the spread of Coronavirus.
