(WENY) -- The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has turned communities around the globe into one village. WENY TV News parent company, Lilly Broadcasting is working to bring you stories of community, strength and understanding with perspective from our colleagues around the country.

It's a conversation about how life in each of the areas we cover has changed and how people are finding unique, creative, and supportive ways to stay informed and connected. Because we are all #InItTogether.

As WENY News wraps up the special series the final week of April, WENY's Isabel Garcia checks in with One Caribbean Television reporter, Melissa Noel, who is based in the New York City metro area. Melissa discusses how officials in the city are preparing to re-open businesses after Gov. Cuomo outlined his plan to "unpause" the state in mid-May.
