No to Gender Violence

Living with someone who causes you harm is not easy, especially when having to create a safety plan to seek refuge elsewhere.

People who are surviving violence in their homes may be experiencing increased isolation and increased exposure to risk caused by social distancing measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Survivors often have specific needs around safety and confidentiality.

You are not alone and support is available 24/7. There are several not-for-profit organizations throughout the five boroughs whose lines are open and staffed with experts ready to offer free and confidential assistance with safety planning, securing alternative shelter, among other services.

Plasma, panic & pandemics

Blood treatment was a bust for Craig Spencer.

In 2014, Spencer became Patient Zero – New York City’s first Ebola patient.

Outbreaks of Ebola, a rare but deadly virus, most commonly surface in sub-Saharan Africa.

In 2014, approximately eleven cases surfaced in the United States including Spencer, who had returned from working with Doctors Without Borders in West Africa. He was treated, and recovered, at Bellevue Hospital.

Among the therapies used to save his life was blood treatment, in which he received plasma infusions from an Ebola survivor.

“It didn’t work. It gave me some complications,” recalled Spencer.

Spencer, who now serves as an emergency room physician and Director of Global Health in Emergency Medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, warned against over-confidence in quick potential cures as the city continues to grapple with the coronavirus crisis.

“Right now, the only thing we know that decreases cases and mortality is staying home. That’s it,” remarked Spencer. He noted that medication such as hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin have shown promise but more research is needed.

New benefits agreement for family of fallen transit workers

A new benefits package has been announced for the family of transit workers whose lives were lost to COVID-19.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), Transport Workers Union Local 100 (TWU), the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART), and International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 808 (IBT) have announced an agreement to provide benefits for families of transit workers who died due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The benefits include a payment of $500,000 from the MTA to the surviving family of any worker who lost their life as a result of COVID-19, in addition to providing health insurance to the spouse and dependents to the age of 26 of the surviving family for three years.

“Transportation workers are the moving heroes of this public health crisis, continuing to get healthcare workers, first responders and other essential personnel where they need to go and saving lives,” said MTA Chairman and CEO Patrick J. Foye. “What our frontline workers have done during this pandemic is nothing short of heroic and we believe this agreement is another crucial step in recognizing their sacrifice. The losses the MTA family has suffered are heartbreaking and our thoughts are with the families of our beloved colleagues during this challenging time.”

iPads for patients

No one is allowed to visit the thousands of New Yorkers hospitalized with COVID-19.

Dr. Jenny Chang saw many patients admitted without cell phones, leaving them out of touch with those they need most.

Chang is a resident physician at Jacobi-Montefiore’s Emergency Room.

She and her team created a virtual visitation program. They are requesting donations of iPads so patients can contact their loved ones while in isolation.

“As providers, we cannot even begin to imagine the loneliness and fear these patients must feel or fathom the sorrow and helplessness of their families,” Chang said in a statement. “Due to the no-visitation policy, many critically ill and dying patients are unable to communicate or say a final farewell to their loved ones.”

City Council to hold first-ever remote stated meeting

There’ll be a change in the chambers.

For the first time in over eighty years, the New York City Council will hit “remote.”

On April 22, the Council will conduct a Stated meeting in remote fashion, a first in the Council’s history.

It will be the legislative body’s first meeting since the coronavirus outbreak.

Members of the public will be able to watch the meeting online in real time via the Council website.

“It isn’t easy to get an 82-year-old legislative body up and running remotely for the first time in its history, but I am proud of the work that the staff put in to make this happen in a secure and publicly accessible fashion. I speak for all members in saying we are eager to resume legislating for the people of New York,” said Council Speaker Corey Johnson in the announcement, made public on April 15th. “The coming weeks and months will not be easy for us as a city, but I can guarantee that the Council will do everything in its power to help us weather this difficult time.”

Since mid-March, all Council meetings have been cancelled due to COVID-19.

New Yorkers under orders to wear masks in public

Mask your mug.

Any New Yorker venturing out in public and in‎ situations where social distancing cannot be maintained must now wear a mask or face covering.

Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order on Wednesday requiring all people in New York State to cover their faces. Effective Friday, April 17, the order will be enforced by local governments.

“If you are going to be in a situation, in public, where you come into contact with other people in a situation that is not socially distanced, you must have a mask or a cloth covering nose and mouth,”
Cuomo said at a press conference.

Cuomo explained that the order was part of a “phased reopening” that would allow the state to return to normal.

He suggested that the COVID-19 crisis would not be considered over until scientists could develop a viable vaccination against the virus.

Immigrant-owned shops like Buunni Coffee are the cornerstones of New York City. We were lucky to spend time with founders Sarina and Elias before the #COVID19 outbreak, who have built a community on Ethiopian macchiatos and love! It's essential that we do everything we can to support our small businesses at this time.

As many New Yorkers struggle to make ends meet during the COVID-19 outbreak, the NYC Department of Small Business Services is here to support our business owners and jobseekers alike, who are vital to keeping our communities strong.

Sustenance and solidarity at the Y

Martin Englisher has seen a lot.

For over four decades, Englisher has served at the YM & YWHA of Washington Heights and Inwood (the Y), an organization with an astonishing 103 years of history in Northern Manhattan.

The group has endured numerous challenges since its founding, including moving locations twice and weathering periods of tumult when crime and violence plagued uptown streets. Many of the organization’s older members are Holocaust survivors.

But even Englisher, the Y’s Chief Executive Officer, is floored.

“I’ve faced a lot of things in my 40 years here, but I’ve never faced this,” he remarked, noting that COVID-10 has presented historic challenges for the staff and members alike.

While New York City remains on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, residents remain in need of essential services provided by community organizations.

This includes Northern Manhattan seniors reliant upon meals from the Y, which provides social services and enrichment programs for all ages.

“We were getting calls from our members. They were saying they were going hungry,” said Englisher.

Artists in a life of quarantine - Part IV

These are uncertain times and we don’t know what the future will bring.

What we do with our time is important—whether it’s caring for others in a necessary job, trying to educate children while working from home, or focusing on that book we’ve always wanted to write. Or maybe we are just staying home, protecting everyone else by protecting ourselves.

This is the fourth installment in a series focused on the creative community in our midst. We’ve asked some of the most ingenious artists and creators who’ve graced these pages in the past to share what they are doing and what they are thinking now – and what might be ahead.

Estos son tiempos inciertos y no sabemos qué traerá el futuro. Lo que hacemos con nuestro tiempo es importante, ya sea cuidar a los demás en un trabajo necesario, tratar de educar a los niños mientras trabajamos desde casa o centrarnos en ese libro...

Relief Rx

It’s the community v. COVID-19.

A new grant program established by New York-Presbyterian Hospital (NYP) will award up to $10 million in grants to Northern Manhattan businesses hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

The grant program is designed to provide emergency cash assistance to businesses, non-profits and partnerships taking a financial hit or fighting for survival due to the virus.

“We must mobilize now, and do all we can, to help our businesses and community organizations during this trying time,” said Luis Miranda, who will chair the initiative’s Advisory Board. “The sooner we act, the sooner critical resources will actually reach and help those in greatest need.”

Columbia sports facility turned into field hospital

From laps to labs.

The indoor practice bubble at Columbia University’s Baker Athletics Complex in Inwood, which features a world-class track, is being repurposed into a field hospital to care for COVID-19 patients.

NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) has partnered with Columbia and former U.S. military personnel to develop the field hospital, which will be capable of treating up to 288 patients with COVID-19, according to a NYP spokesperson.

Typically used by Columbia University’s varsity sports teams as a winter practice facility, the site is now under conversion for medical use and is expected to receive its first coronavirus patients within a few days.

The athletic complex is located on 218th Street near Broadway, adjacent to NYP’s Allen Hospital. The temporary field hospital will be used to alleviate the demand on Allen and other NYP hospitals.
