The May 4, 2020 issue of The New Yorker contains a multi-author article, entitled “April 15, 2020: A Coronavirus Chronicle”, which attempts to present a picture of life in New York City--the epicenter of the Covid-19 epidemic-- over the course of one day by looking at what a few of the millions of people in New York City were doing at specific times of the day. Among the people who are keeping things going is @Carolyn Riccardelli, a conservator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a member of a collections monitoring team who, at some time between 10:30 and 10:45am, was checking the condition of works in the galleries and storerooms. These days, not only is she a conservator of objects, she is also a conservator of fish. She conserves the life of the koi in the Astor Chinese Garden Court pond by feeding them.
