Coronavirus Update March 23, 2020

 

A PSP Update…

 

As we take a “pause” from life as we know it (per Gov. Cuomo) I just wanted to give some updates and thoughts about how to cope, how to help, and how to continue to smile (maybe?) in the face of all this uncertainty.

 

You are not alone in being anxious, disappointed, fearful, frustrated, and uncertain.  When I say “we’ll get through this,” in my messages it’s not to say that it won’t suck, that we won’t grieve over things like prom, high school graduation, dance recitals, and birthday parties, or that we won’t have to make sacrifices that we never thought we would have to make.  Together, though, we can support each other, be excellent to each other, and find ways to thrive in the face of adversity. 

 

Check the PSP Calendar for our upcoming events. We’re planning more baby group meetups, crafting group meetups, sing-a-longs, working with the 5th Ave BID, Birth Day Presence, Boober, and employment lawyers at A Better Balance. The Dads are playing Chess as well as more poker, the Widows/Widowers are meeting up, and we’re going to have virtual lunch on Friday.  We’re also hoping to start planning virtual happy hours too!

 

Remote learning starts this week. There are going to be hiccups. Things are not going to run perfectly. This is a big learning curve for everyone, and three cheers for the teachers who have had this huge curveball thrown at them and had to rise to the challenge.  Thank them even if things are not perfect. GOOD LUCK!

 

Keep connecting.  Even if it’s a quick text, phone call, or Zoom meeting with your baby group or family, reaching out and staying connected is good for the soul. Check in with your neighbors, especially older neighbors who may not have help and support.  Check in on new parents and say congratulations (there’s something wonderful about having new babies).  

 

Continue to Practice Social Distancing. Some of us are great at this, others not so much. 6 feet. Not 3 feet while looking away as you walk past; not “I’m running faster than that person so the 6 feet rule doesn’t count;” and not “I’m biking quickly and in a groove.”  This is for the safety of everyone, not just you. It’s also helpful for everyone’s mental health to be socially distant outside. It’s imperative that you stay home unless absolutely necessary. Social isolation is the best tool we have in our toolkit for slowing and stopping transmission. Here are guidelines on how to Stop the Spread.

 

We are constantly monitoring the flow of information.  For some people information is power, for others it is anxiety-producing. We are also hearing that some hospitals are better at providing information than others. With new information comes a new set of decisions and challenges for some people, and we want to be a good resource for people. Know that we are carefully balancing the needs of our members with every post we send.

 

I’m sorry.  I’ve got a backlog of messages from many of you offering services and ideas as well as giving me feedback on choices we’ve made.  While I haven’t had time to respond to all of them, know that I have read them all and am working with our Dr. Gordon our PSP Medical Liaison, our Advisory Board, and other experts trying to provide you with the most up-to-date information we can provide in a way that doesn’t incite fear and panic. Keep these positive messages coming; they help give me more energy to keep going. Be kind when providing criticism; it’s necessary and we appreciate them, but kindness makes such a difference. 

 

Keep talking to your nannies and house cleaners.  If they are still coming to work, make sure they are as safe as possible. If you can’t afford to pay them right now, discuss ways to keep their families going. Paying half-rate is better than nothing.  If they are home, stay connected with them virtually so your children have some continuity with all their caregivers. 

 

There are Mental Health Resources. Boober and The Motherhood Center have them, and there’s a citywide hotline. We’re working with mental health providers to help set up expectant parent webinars on planning for anything. 

 

Thank Someone.  Whether it’s a teacher who has spent the last week learning a whole new way to teach, a delivery person, a doctor you’ve consulted with, or the person on the street that mindfully distances themselves as you pass.  

 

Practice Gratitude within your Home.  Even with all that’s going on, there is a lot to be thankful for whether it be food delivery at our fingertips, spring blooms, our healthcare workers, or our truckers continuing to bring toilet paper.  Start a gratitude jar and write down 3 things you’re grateful for each day. At the end of this crazy year you will look back to see that despite all the bad stuff, there was light and goodness too.

 

Working remotely is not ideal for many of you, and know that you can only do your best. Cut yourself and your kids a lot of slack.  Give each other space. Two good pieces of advice.  1. Have meetings with your family each morning/night to discuss the next day (e.g., phone calls, deadlines, assignments due) so you are on the same page.  2. Have a “I’m busy” rule where if you have headphones on don’t bother me. If you don’t have headphones use a headband (unicorn horn or cat ears). If you’re not practicing social distancing in the home you can have the “hand on shoulder” rule.  “Touch me on the shoulder rather than talk to me while I’m on the phone. I’ll answer you by putting my hand on top of yours so you know I know you need me. I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.” 

 

There are Resources to Help!  PSP has tried to pull all the resources onto one place here. Virtual sing alongs, classes, virtual zoo visits-- updated daily!

 

Volunteering and Making A Difference:

 

Thank Healthcare Workers. Make cards, take photos of them,  and email them to " style="text-decoration: none;"> and " style="text-decoration: none;"> . They can print them out and put them up in staff rooms and break rooms.  Look also here.  A great way to keep your kids busy and give back at the same time. 

 

Give Blood. There have been calls for giving blood but at this time there is not a place in Brooklyn where you can give. I’m contacting people about when this will be set up.

The New York Sewing Center is posting on Instagram live on Monday at 6pm to learn how to sew a CDC compliant mask. 

There are multiple ways to donate money to mask relief funds for specific hospitals and centers, but here is one that is not hospital specific. 



A Note about Fundraisers: We can’t post every single gofundme on PSP -- if there is something you feel strongly about (whether it’s a favorite restaurant, bar, animal shelter, etc.) please use your social media outlets for those fundraising efforts. 

 

Support local businesses. Order from your favorite places (restaurants, bookstores), buy gift certificates or just send a note of thanks to your favorite businesses.  If you’re a small business owner, the 5th Ave BID is working on a webinar to help you understand the ever-changing laws.

 

As always, here are your go to resources for all things coronavirus. Everyone’s level of news consumption is different; if you need breaks from the emotionally charged news coverage you’ll find these resources more matter of fact and hopefully less triggering.

Take breaks and manage your stress. Feel your feelings, meditate, and find your distractions. Insane Pools on Hulu was helpful, along with mudlarking, crystal collector, and sea glass hunting. Here are some pick me ups despite the circumstances that made me smile.  

 

Adversity builds character and strength.  Horace once said, “Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.” The current challenges we are facing have already created new music, new working collaborations, and new ways that we can be productive and connected.  Our children will have more resilience and fortitude if we can be good role models for them. 

 

We are an interconnected community. The choices we make impact other people, so make smart, thoughtful choices about what is best for the community. Also remember that PSP is made up of all different kinds of families; not all families are mom/dad, or dual parent families. 

 

Let’s continue to be kind to each other. As I drove back from my anxiety-producing sonogram (yay no breast cancer return!) I rolled down the window and (mindfully) thanked the national grid guy, the DSNY guy collecting the city’s trash, and said hello to the folks I passed on the street (maintaining 6 feet!).  Online we can continue to be kind in our emails to each other, give people the benefit of the doubt that their actions were well-intentioned, and put our own anxieties in check so we don’t impose them on others. It makes our job so much easier if you have these guidelines in mind when you write messages. 

 

In other news... I passed an important test.  I had a sonogram this morning (they are tracking to see if my breast cancer is back) and it came back as a thumbs up! That means I won't be slowed down by managing my cancer and can spend more time and energy helping you!  It did make me appreciate and empathize with other people struggling with illnesses, special needs, and even pregnancy. (Oh, We're working to get expectant parents a Tool Kit to help you through this time! Stay tuned!)

 

A virtual hug to all of you.

EXTRA STUFF!!!!

=====================================================================

 

Social Distancing:

 

Please do all you can to ensure social distancing, which is essential to slowing the spread of the virus. This means minimizing your in person interaction with others, including in our parks. The weather has been sunny and the parks are crowded; some people are not respecting social distancing, making it difficult for others to do so. Insofar as you can, 

  • please take walks away from crowded places (like Prospect Park at mid-day on weekends);

  • do not take walks/runs with friends unless you maintain a distance of 6 feet; 

  • walk around people on sidewalks

This is not just about your health; it is about public health and the safety and mental health of our healthcare workers and other front line providers. Each person with COVID-19 infects about two other people, sometimes before they even show symptoms. Those newly infected people could be in a high risk group or be one of the unlucky otherwise healthy people who gets very sick or dies from COVID-19. "High risk groups" are a significant group; about 40% of all people over 18 are at higher risk of developing serious illness if they are infected with COVID 19. Health care professionals are starting to develop criteria for rationing care, and some health care workers have articulately explained how personally they take cavalier flaunting of social distancing by elected officials.

We were also at signed up for a Mount Sinai session that cancelled but were told of their e-learning course accessible for up to 6 months.

I have been worrying about lack of in person class options. I saw earlier that Birth Day Presence are now doing online classes https://birthdaypresence.com/parents/all-classes/#virtual-classes

A friend told me about Tinyhood, which offers a few online courses and is currently offering their breastfeeding course for free! I haven't used it yet but it seems affordable/any information seems good to me at this point :) I think they also offer 15% off your first purchase and I  just got a $10 promo code if anyone would like to sign up -W8V5Q2

Keep the ideas going!  Sharing a few that have worked (or not for us):

 

- We opened our pull-out couch today and made it into a bouncy/low play area. A hit!

 

- Also took out a few Tupperwares and our son has been quite entertained trying lids and putting stuff in/out of them.

 

- He's enjoyed moving fridge magnets around, which we lowered to his height and stuck on our metal trash cans as well.

 

- We made a maraca out of a toilet paper roll filled with Cheerios, but that didn't last long.  He busted it open and had a snack!

 

- Soon we plan to use baking pans with water in the kitchen floor (maybe we'll regret this one).

 

Stay patient and have fun!

Going Outside:

 It looks like the shelter-in-place order for the SF Bay Area allows for running / hiking outside so long as you're alone or separated by ~6 feet from your running / hiking partner. So I would *assume* that if NYC adopts a similarly strict policy (and the mayor said they'd consider it if need be), they'll allow the same so long as people aren't blatantly ignoring it and going out in groups.

I love Melissa Wood Health, Megan Roup (sculpt society), and LEKFIT! Lots of good options out there nowadays!

Fhitting Room also has 30 days complimentary Fhitting Room on demand! Includes pre/post-natal and equipment free options.

 

I love Fitness Blender (free on YouTube) workouts, they have tons of variety for all levels, types of workouts and length. I'm also still running the park as much as possible and jumping rope in my apartment whenever the anxiety takes over. :-)

 

I've been running in the park with my toddler in the stroller, usually during the week when the park is less crowded. I'm now waffling on whether or not to continue doing so. We have a Peloton and I'll switch to that if running outside is no longer possible.

Peloton and Fhitting Room and NEOU are all great resources for at home workouts too!
