Response to COVID-19

The pandemic has undoubtedly had an effect on everyone’s lives– whether that’s in the form of switching to online classes, undergoing stress and responsibility at work, dealing with the effects of the virus first hand as an essential worker, experiencing the consequences of social distancing on mental health, coping with the loss of loved ones, and more.

 

Albany’s Response to COVID-19

In previous weeks, the Albany area has followed social distancing measures laid out by Governor Andrew Cuomo. Schools are closed until the end of the academic year (and summer classes will be done remotely as well), and all non-essential businesses, such as gyms and hair salons, have also been closed (1). Additionally, all hospitals in New York were asked to cancel elective procedures and increase the number of beds, as coronavirus cases were growing (2). To assist all of the families that are experiencing financial hardship since many have lost their sources of income, $200 million in food assistance was also made available (2). 

In Albany, mobile testing sites have been made available throughout the week. I think this can be especially helpful for people that might not be able to travel far to get tested if they have symptoms. More information about the specific days/location/times that testing is available can be found here.

Getting Back to “Normal”

Governor Cuomo has announced a 4-phase plan of reopening New York. I’ve included an image summarizing the main reopenings in each phase. The guidelines for deciding to open a region in NY again are here.

As of May 20th, the Capital District, which includes Albany, has started Phase 1 of reopening New York.

For a lot of us, I think it can be relieving to hear that we are going back to “normal,” but it’s important to not take advantage of the reopening and stop practicing social distancing altogether. For all of the work that healthcare providers, government officials, and the general public has done to decrease the spread of the virus, staying safe and healthy and keeping others safe will still be important. I’m not sure what the new “normal” will look like, but I hope that as we start reopening, that the stress on healthcare workers, on families that are experiencing loss and financial hardship, and on everyone going through a hard time, will be alleviated soon. How do you think your community will have changed after the pandemic?

  3. Arsenal out of Europe: How will Europa League loss affect title challenge
    Arsenal’s European hopes ended on Thursday with defeat by Sporting Lisbon – but could it ultimately prove a blessing in disguise?
    The Gunners bowed out in the last 16 of the Europa League in a penalty shootout – the first Arsenal have competed in at Emirates Stadium – capping off a hugely dramatic encounter.
    In a gruelling 120 minutes, Arsenal conceded a stunning 46-yard equaliser, lost players to injury and ultimately came away with nothing.
    Mikel Arteta believes Takehiro Tomiyasu’s injury looks “pretty serious” after the Arsenal star left the Emirates on crutches,

  4. Christian Atsu: Ghana funeral for footballer killed by Turkey earthquake
    Hundreds of people including Ghana’s president are paying their last respects to Christian Atsu, who died in last month’s earthquake in Turkey.
    His funeral is being held outside State House in Ghana’s capital, Accra.
    “In life I love you darling, in death I’ll do the same,” read the tearful tribute from the footballer’s widow, Marie-Claire Rupio.
    She was overcome with emotion and handed her speech to Atsu’s sister to finish reading.

  5. Pep Guardiola says Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is one of the “biggest legends” he has managed as he prepares to welcome the former Manchester City captain back to Etihad Stadium.
    Premier League winners City meet the runaway Championship leaders in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday.
    Kompany, 36, won four Premier League titles during his 11 years at City.
    “He was an incredible figure here. He is one of the biggest legends I have had,” Guardiola said of Kompany.
    The 52-year-old joked: “But I am a little bit concerned because when you start to play a game against a player you had on the touchline, you realise how old you are becoming!”
    Former Belgium defender Kompany, who left City to join Anderlecht as player-manager in 2019, has made a huge impact since taking charge of Burnley last summer.เค้าไพ่บาคาร่า
