As we enter yet another week following social distancing guidelines and staying at home, I want to thank you for saving lives. While I know many of us feel restless and would like to get back to seeing our families and friends, it is so important that we continue to do all we can to flatten the curve. We have done an incredible job here in New York of limiting the spread of COVID-19, and as frontline health care workers continue to treat those who do become ill, we are doing our part to help them by sheltering in place. On the federal level, I continue to monitor the President's and his Administration's response to the crisis and work on furture legislation to directly help the American people.
