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?

  1. Isles of Scilly: Runaway cows and visits from Beckham – life in the world’s littlest league
    When Anthony Gibbons joined a Sunday morning kickabout, he didn’t imagine it would lead to being David Beckham’s body double.
    But it turns out playing in the world’s smallest league is a less predictable experience than it first appears.
    The Isles of Scilly Football League consists of just two teams – the Woolpack Wanderers and Garrison Gunners. Not only do the sides face off in 18 league games each season,
    but they also compete in two annual cup competitions – both two-legged affairs with no away goals rule – and a Charity Shield-style exhibition.
    The duopoly makes it the smallest league of its kind in the world. Technically it is an inter-club league, because both teams are registered to St Mary’s,
    a club on the eponymously-titled island in the archipelago off the Cornish coast.เล่นบาคาร่า

  2. Lucy Bronze & Keira Walsh: Barcelona pushing England duo to greater heights
    “Having the best players in the world makes it easier to win games.”
    It may seem like an obvious statement but for England stars Lucy Bronze and Keira Walsh, it became even more evident after they joined one of the best teams in the world.
    The duo – part of Sarina Wiegman’s Euro 2022-winning side – had already placed themselves among the world’s best players before they moved to Barcelona.
    Bronze agreed to join the Catalan club in June after her contract with Manchester City expired while Walsh signed from City
    in a women’s world-record £400,000 deal in September.เล่นบาคาร่า

  33. Manchester United: Red Devils charged by Football Association over conduct in FA Cup win against Fulham
    Manchester United have been charged with improper conduct for surrounding the referee during Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final victory over Fulham.
    United players approached referee Chris Kavanagh amid the 71st-minute incident that saw Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic, Willian and boss Marco Silva sent off.
    The Football Association say United “failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion”.
    The Red Devils have until Monday 27 March to respond to the charge.
    Fulham striker Mitrovic is facing a long ban after being charged with violent and improper conduct by the FA for the push on Kavanagh that led to his red card.บาคาร่าไม่มีขั้นต่ำ
