“On Thursday I announced that on Sunday, October 18, I was in direct contact with an individual who earlier this week exhibited symptoms of COVID-19 and who tested positive for the virus on Wednesday.
The result of my subsequent COVID-19 test was negative, and I’m not exhibiting any symptoms of the virus. To clarify yesterday’s statement, despite my negative test, I will continue to self-quarantine for 14 days (until November 1), following CDC guidelines and medical advice.”
Happy UN Day!
As they have been every October 24 for decades, the flags of member nations fly proudly today, on the Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Memorial Bridge.
That’s appropriate. The span’s namesake was a longtime UN advocate, and founder of the local chapter of the United Nations Association. She also founded jUNe Day, our annual summer event.

Who doesn’t like free ice cream?
Especially when it’s vegan, allergen-friendly, plant-based, non-dairy, frozen, nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free and refined sugar-free.

NewBrook Kitchen on Riverside Avenue offers a free Sunscoop tasting event. It begins Wednesday (October 28), and runs through Saturday, October 31 — or until they run out.
Individual pre-packaged sample cups of the dessert are available in wild blueberry crumble, strawberry maca, toasted coconut butter, moringa mint chip, vanilla tart and dark cacao with reishi. There’s no purchase necessary, but there’s a one-per-customer limit.
There’s a discount for buying a 6-pack of pints (one for each flavor).
NewBrook is open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For a delivery of the 6-pint case, plus a free tasting cup, call 203-557-6087 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
And finally … Happy UN Day!
