為進一步加強防控,保證所有非必須行業員工最大程度在家隔離,紐約州州長葛謨(Andrew Cuomo)和新州、康州和賓州州長20日決定從21日(周六)晚8時起關閉周內理髮店、美甲店和個人護理相關服務店面,重開日期未確定。

Mortgage payments, credit card fees and ATM fees will be waived in New York as the state grapples with the economic impact of its novel coronavirus response, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday.

Banks and financial institutions will waive mortgage payments for 90 days for those with financial hardship as well as fees related to deposits and withdrawals as directed by the state's Department of Finance, said Cuomo.

A trio of lonely souvenir stores remained open in Chinatown on Thursday as the coronavirus crisis continued to pummel Big Apple businesses, turning some of the city’s most bustling shopping streets into ghost towns.

“Who is going to pay our rent? We made $100 today. I need to pay rent for my house,” said Safikul Uzzal, 28, who owns two of the open stores, Shah Jalal Gift Shop on Canal Street and Gifts and Souvenirs on Mulberry Street.

While some mainstream retail chain stores have run out of items like toilet paper, medicines, water, rice and canned foods, many supermarkets run by Chinese and Korean immigrants have adequate supply. At these stores, things look no different from ordinary times, with the number of customers the same. Many Chinese shoppers said that while non-Chinese New Yorkers were slow in their reaction to the pandemic, many Chinese New Yorkers prepared early. 
Over the last 100 years, Chinatown’s Nom Wah Tea Parlor has survived crashes, recessions, depressions, tong wars, terrorist attacks, hurricanes, floods, and fires. The only thing missing was pestilence. Until now. Like every other New York City restaurant, it shut down last week. Now the crook of Doyer Street is deserted and the dumplings are unmade. The question is, How long can it last? On Tuesday, March 17, Grub Street spoke to Wilson Tang, Nom Wah’s owner, about his long-term prospects and the future of Chinatown.

Asian Americans are advocating #WashTheHate in an effort to combat Coronavirus racism.
The campaign began yesterday with a series of videos posted to social media from prominent Asian Americans. In each clip, participants are seen washing their hands in accordance with the CDC’s recommendations as well as sharing how the pandemic has affected them.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly referred to COVID-19 as the "Chinese virus," raising concerns among civil rights groups and political leaders about a corresponding increase in discrimination and racist violence against U.S. residents of Asian and Pacific island descent.

Now a new online reporting center has been established to collect and track such incidents, including "hate violence, adult harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying" in California and across the U.S.
