Central Park keeps New Yorkers 'sane' during coronavirus lockdown

Description

Trees blooming, birds chirping: Evidence that spring has sprung is everywhere in Central Park. While tourists have left New York, the park helps the city's residents remain "sane" amid the coronavirus lockdown. "It's so delightful to your soul," says New Yorker Didi Nitta.

  • 'Stay safe, stay on a bike': oldest bike shop in the US helps New Yorkers ride out coronavirus lockdown

    When America's oldest bike shop opened, the Spanish flu was ravaging New York. More than a century later, it's helping residents work and stay sane as cycling takes on a vital role during the coronavirus pandemic. While almost all stores were ordered to close for the Big Apple's COVID-19 shutdown, bike shops like Bellitte Bicycles were deemed essential businesses and allowed to stay open. As people get back into cycling, Peter Frouws, co-owner of the shop, notices an increase in business activity. Oliver Bucknor, one of his clients, had to purchase a bicycle to make food deliveries after losing his job as a van driver at the start of the outbreak.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
