Additional Information

Mom and dad are working from home at the moment and the family has been pretty strictly social distancing since March. Mom was sick right at the beginning in March and was unable to get a Covid test then, but has since gotten a positive antibody test. They've been healthy since then. They go for walks to the park and are close to Brooklyn Bridge Park which has been largely empty during the week. They go to the grocery store one or twice a week. The parents wear a mask when they go out and the boys have masks, too, though that is a challenge in itself.
