Good Tuesday morning.

Yesterday, two briefings – one in Albany and one in Washington – cast light on the difficulty of delivering complex news to an audience hungry for clarity.  For Governor Cuomo, the challenge was to explain why New Yorkers must continue stay-at-home orders in the face of evidence that the “worst is over.”  Meanwhile, President Trump tackled the job of praising his virus response in the face of evidence that for the nation, the worst is yet to come.

For those seeking information, today brings two opportunities to learn about advancements in the fight against COVID-19 and programs designed to help your business survive in these difficult times.
