Governor Cuomo on Hand Sanitizers:
“Regarding precautionary alcohol wipes. We talk a lot about hand sanitizer. Since I went in to the hand sanitizer business I’m a semi-expert on hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer is alcohol. That’s what it is. If you can’t get hand sanitizer, get a bottle of alcohol, pour it on wipes, paper towels, that’s an alcohol wipe. Hand sanitizer now, according to the CDC, has to be over 60 percent alcohol to be effective.”
Mayor de Blasio:
“I did not know this, rubbing alcohol and Aloe Vera can be mixed together to create a version of hand sanitizer.”
Where’s the Alcohol?
Governor Cuomo’s spoken of how the State would be mass producing 100,000 gallons of Hand Sanitizer per week and distributing them to areas in most dire need. That would be New York City. Where are they?
IF they’re not distributed to residents then at least make sure that pharmacies, supermarkets and others providing essential services have them within their establishments so that consumers can make use of them. Good Idea?
DCWP encourages consumers who are overcharged to file a complaint at nyc.gov/dcwp or by contacting 311 and saying “overcharge.” Consumers who believe they were victimized by price gouging should keep their receipts and any information about the store where the transaction occurred, and file a complaint with DCWP.
NYC Schools / Education
To help students stay connected during emergencies, the DOE is lending internet-enabled iPads to support remote learning for students. If you would like to request a device for a NYC student in your family, please fill out the form. The DOE will use the contact information you provide to get in touch with you to discuss when and where you can pick up a device. Priority will be given to students most in need, and all devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned. There is a limit of one device per student.
The New York City Department of Education is committed to making three free meals available daily for all NYC children.
Beginning March 23, meals will be distributed at more than 400 sites across the city.
Three meals a day, including breakfast, will be available to all NYC children Monday through Friday 7:30 am to 1:30 pm at locations across the city.
Use our site lookup tool to find a location near you!
How to Pick Up a Meal
No registration, ID, or documentation required.
All three meals a day may be picked up at the same time.
No dining space is available, so meals must be eaten off premises.
Parents and guardians may pick up meals for their children.
