Watch this 18-minute video now to be aware of symptoms for Pediatric Multi-System Inflammation Syndrome, especially in households that have had some positive COVID-19 exposure.  It is still rare and ultimate outcomes are good, especially when caught early, but it it definitely is here in Westchester County and we must be vigilant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9PsRfWR_WM&feature=youtu.be BICYCLE SUNDAY UPDATE - The 2nd Bicycle Sunday was safer than the first. Westchester County Executive Latimer’s office arranged to close the food concession stand at the entrance/exit of the Bicycle Sunday event at Main Street/White Plains. Last week  many cyclists were not social distancing at that location. This week no one congregated at that location. Thank you!  Most people wore masks yesterday when cycling. Some did not. Some cyclists still were bunched up (not social distancing) at traffic lights (Main Street, White Plains, Scarsdale/Eastchester border where police stop and start traffic).  From the NY Times --information about a great blog that explains how COVID-19 spreads inside spaces, like restaurants, churches, workplaces, and schools. By now, a friend may already have forwarded you a much-discussed blog post from a biologist named Erin Bromage — it has more than six million views. It’san impressively clear explanation of how the virus often spreads inside confined spaces, like restaurants, churches, workplaces and schools. Even when people remain more than six feet apart, they can become infected by breathing the same air as an infected person for an extended period of time, Bromage explains. Those scenarios, he argues, are more worrisome than a quick trip to the grocery store or almost any outdoor activity. Background: Bromage told me that he began focusing on the virus in January to have a current example to use in his class on infectious diseases at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. https://www.erinbromage.com/post/the-risks-know-them-avoid-them?campaign_id=9&emc=edit_nn_20200511&instance_id=18384&nl=the-morning&regi_id=65523396&segment_id=27239&te=1&user_id=92f7caa5433446f95bfae36dce22598a BE SAFE AND HEALTHY PAUL FEINER
