Coronavirus Chronicle – Week 3

It’s the third week of the quarantine and the days now starting to blend with one another.  The weekends, which used to provide an escape from the daily work routine and a much-needed break from the commute to the city, seem to have lost all meaning.  Yesterday, as I walked through the neighboring village of Hastings-On-Hudson, I saw a teenage girl riding her skateboard down Main Street wearing a surgical mask.  A scene that may have looked odd only a few weeks ago now a sign of the new normal.

View of St. Matthews’s Catholic church in Hastings-On-Hudson, NY.  Due to the virus outbreak, the church has canceled all on-site services.  Instead, services are now being streamed via Facebook.

By now we’ve all heard the stories of New York City residents who give a nightly round of applause to the healthcare workers and other people who keep life moving.  While I haven’t seen that gesture of gratitude here, as I was walking, I did notice this thank you sign hanging from a light post outside a home.
