    We’re in our second week of sheltering at home. Cuomo warned Sunday this thing will drag on and be much worse than it needs to be if New Yorkers don’t take social distancing seriously, and he also said the federal government needs to step up and handle supplies of masks and ventilators.

    Meanwhile, our social lives, school and events have moved to Zoom and Instagram — the latter has also become a major source of news, particularly for individuals and local small businesses who are posting status updates.
