Upcoming Events, Political News, & More...

Dear CRDC,

This upcoming Thursday we will be holding our second Virtual Happy Hour with Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, plus other special guests. See details in the 'Upcoming Events' section. Also, check out our new Resource page on our website. The link can be found below in the 'What Else is Going On' section.

Just as a reminder, even though the weather is becoming nicer outside, it doesn’t mean you should forget about all of the safety rules we have been following for the last couple of months. Please continue to wear masks and practice social distancing. Nobody enjoys our current situation, however if we ever want things to get better, if we want NYC to open up, if we want life to go back to whatever our new normal will be, we must be mindful and considerate with everything we do.

Lessons Learned about the Coronavirus

The folowing was written by a dear friend who had contracted the Coronavirus. Each day he took notes, detailing his own experience in hopes it would be helpful to others. He has granted me permission to share this with you all. Thank you Brian for these helpful, "lessons learned."

-Freedom day! (And I feel really good!) Finally out of the basement after 26 days, and I wanted to share some “lessons learned” from my experience, in hopes that they may help someone out there. 

1 – Quarantine as soon as possible. When my first fever kicked in, I practically ran to the basement to get away from my family. We talked by calling or texting each other. They left my food on the stairs. Those types of precautions all made a difference.
