Ah, sorry. Here you go: Hi! Reema here from Chalkbeat New York. Hope you’re all well. I’m wondering about your thoughts on the implications this will have for students who are learning English as a new language. How can the DOE best support these students? To be clear — wondering how remote learning will affect them
Sydney Pereira

Hi - Figured it out! Sydney Pereira from Gothamist here. What are the specific demands for providing money to restaurant/bar/etc. workers who are either laid off or on unpaid leave while places close? Particulary after recent announcements that those places are required to only open for takeout/pickup.
Sydney Pereira

Another Q: Have you all gotten specific concerns from immigrants or guidance on cost of testing for OTHER diseases? It seems other tests are conducted before COVID-19 tests to rule out things like the flu. Additionally, what about treatment specifically for both COVID and other diseases?
