Brigham, Broad Institute team to test 10,000 people in at-home coronavirus study called TestBoston

Officials said the study will seek to detect active coronavirus cases, evidence of previous infections, and changes in the rates of both in a representative group of 10,000 Brigham patients consistent with the demographics of Greater Boston.

Whereas New York Fashion Week saw very few in-person shows, almost no street style, and nearly as many films as runway collections, Milan Fashion Week was about as close to “normal” as it gets mid-pandemic. Show-goers wore face masks, as did Pierpaolo Piccioli while he waved arrivederci at the end of the Valentino show, and collections included 2020-appropriate items like face coverings at Marni and elbow-length rubber gloves at Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini.
