“Tony and I are both parents and we’re getting lots of questions from our kids about what’s okay and what’s not okay to do during COVID-19,” said Holland, a staff member with City youth services.

“Today I am going to test Tony’s knowledge and ask him a bunch of the questions that many of the parents are hearing across the city from their kids,” he added.
