Thanks dssjh.  The laundromat opposite the post office also does dry cleaning but doubt if they pick up and deliver.  They were open just two days ago.  I don't know the name of the place.  Its between 78 & 79 St.

Okay so now many or most people seem to be wearing masks. If you have the plain variety, not the N95, and you put it on to go to the supermarket--do you really discard it and wear a new one every time you leave your home? As far as I know, they are still in short supply, so what do you do? Is it better to use a scarf that you would then toss in the laundry every time you use it? Not asking for a friend.

If you have four of them, number them and wear them 1-4 on subsequent days. By day 4, #1 mask has been sitting for three days and should be free of the virus. I don’t know if this is scientifically sound advice. I read it in another forum.

Here’s a link I ran across with a lot helpful details and info, including links to various studies, about masks. It has a chart embedded about the effectiveness of various materials for homemade ones.

Given that we’re in bit of a hot zone apparently, I’m relieved  to see so many people wearing them.

Wow, thanks. Finally some scientific info about masks/face coverings.

The fact we were not told to wear masks/face coverings early on has clearly aggravated the situation.

Its a long way from where you live but the Tide One Laundromat at 7609 37th Ave does dry cleaning.  I've used them many times with success.   They do pick up and delivery but I don't know how far they will travel.  Worth a telephone call.  The young man that you'll speak with is called Jay.  Its a family owned business.

As of last week, Tide One was closed "for the foreseeable future." when i walked by on Monday, the gates were still down.

Neighborhood Chat / Dry cleaners open

Does anyone know of any dry cleaners open in the neighborhood? My husband works for an essential business and needs his suits cleaned. The place near us on Northern and 90th st is closed.

I am finding more and more stores that are considered essential are closing, the dunkin donuts on Northern and 88th is closed and they never close.
