The Novel coronavirus is stable on surfaces, study finds


This is why it is so important to wash your hands OFTEN!

The virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is stable for several hours to days in aerosols and on surfaces, according to a new study from National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University scientists in The New England Journal of Medicine. The scientists found that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. The results provide key information about the stability of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 disease, and suggests that people may acquire the virus through the air and after touching contaminated objects. The study information was widely shared during the past two weeks after the researchers placed the contents on a preprint server to quickly share their data with colleagues.


Keeping it real: cash for out-of-work restaurant workers

Cash, Foldable Love, Community Support

March 16, 2020 • Modern Restaurant and Lounge • New Rochelle, NY 

Let's help our service staff community get through this!  

The Last Supper at Modern Restaurant:  Only take-out orders after tonight until further notice.   

Front house staff -- the front house folks like bartenders, servers, bussers, expediters -- are out of work until the government permits seating in the dining room. The financial strain on them and their families is difficult to imagine. 

How can we help?  

Let's join together and show our RESPECT,  APPRECIATION, and LOVE (ReAL) for the folks who make our dining out experiences memorable, elegant, and fun at Modern Restaurant and Lounge.  

Drop off cash at the take-out window at the back of the restaurant on 15 Westchester Place (the flip side of 310 Huguenot Street).  

You can designate a particular person, or ask co-owner Anthony Russo to put it into the service staff assistance fund / tip pool.
