3 free ways to refresh your home

Many of us are rounding the corner on a full year of home life. All. The. Time.

Work, play, dinner, celebrations and downtime all take place in our residence, sometimes all in the same room, depending on our proverbial New York square footage, and that’s paired with a testy wallet fearful of spending in a pandemic economy.

“We’re at home and everybody needs a change,” said Charlotte Barnes, principal of Charlotte Barnes Interior Design and Decoration. “None of us have thought about our houses as much [before] because we were constantly running from here and there, working, meeting friends. Now we’re at home, and it’s a whole different feeling.”

The designers dish the dirt on how to reimagine your home without dipping into your savings.

AG: New York Severely Underestimated Nursing Home Deaths from Covid-19

A new report by New York’s attorney general concluded that the state’s department of health likely undercounted the number of nursing home deaths from Covid-19 by as much as 50 percent. This news comes after the state’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, had been seen by many — including Rolling Stone — as an outstanding leader in the pandemic.

Why the undercount? Because New York’s department of health, unlike in many other states, only counted Covid-19 deaths if the nursing home resident died at the facility.

“Preliminary data obtained by [the attorney general’s office] suggests that many nursing home residents died from Covid-19 in hospitals after being transferred from their nursing homes, which is not reflected in [department of health’s] published total

Dangerous Days Still Ahead, Golden State Justifies Ending Stay-At-Home Order On Anniversary Of 1st Reported Cases

“The good news is we’ve seen highs almost near 4,000 admissions a day into our hospitals because of Covid,” California’s Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly said Tuesday. “Now we’re seeing days below 2,500 and even getting lower, which is exactly what’s going to keep our hospital conditions improving and our ICU capacity as high as it can be.”

The cautiously optimistic briefing by the HHS chief today comes 24 hours after Gov. Gavin Newsom suddenly put the kibosh on the state’s Regional Stay-at-Home Order after just more than a month and a half.

“We hope Californians don’t see yesterday’s announcement as a ‘let’s go and put our guard down,’ but let’s still firmly keep our guard up,” Ghaly said. “Let’s do what we can to make sure our rates don’t increase and rise, that although our hospital delivery system is looking better, looking
