Long Islanders find ways to celebrate Mother's Day amid lockdown

Long Islanders got creative in order to celebrate Mother's Day amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Retired New York City firefighter Dudley Placide celebrated with his 79-year-old mother, who has dementia, through a window at Nassau Rehabilitation and Nursing Care in Hempstead.
The facility set up a tent for family members to see their loved ones on Mother's Day since visiting is restricted.
The pandemic was also changing the way florists do business during one of the busiest days of the year for flowers. Some florists say they are struggling with business, even on Mother's Day.
Laurie Speziale, the owner of Masters and Company Florist in Rockville Centre, says she didn't have as many orders this year. The orders she was able to fill came through social media or over the phone.
She says that the store cannot get flowers from overseas. Speziale says that she has only allowed people to due curbside delivery for the arrangements the store did have.
The florist also gave out handmade cloth masks with each delivery.
