Alisha Narvaez, 36, the manager at International Funeral & Cremation Services funeral home in Harlem, poses for a photo in her personal protective equipment before embalming a deceased person in Manhattan, New York, April 9, 2020. At the beginning of the pandemic, Narvaez sent her 17-year-old daughter to live with her twin sister, but after two weeks the distance was too much. "It's always just been me and her and she wanted to come home," said Narvaez. "I gotta make sure I keep healthy just not to harm her," she added. "Although she's been in quarantine for several weeks, every day I come home from work is Day Zero for her." REUTERS/Andrew Kelly
