    We’re in the fourth week of sheltering in place and the 13th day of home schooling for New York City schools.

    The New York State Department of Health has developed a serum antibody test to detect who is immune to the virus, the Brooklyn Eagle reported. The test will be key to returning to work in New York City, Cuomo said. Brooklyn has 19,499 confirmed cases of COVID-19 so far, just behind Queens. Overall there are 72,324 confirmed cases in New York City and 3,202 official COVID-19 deaths, as of Tuesday morning.
