U.S. Private Sector Job Quality Index Revised to 81.99 from Previous Month - Essentially Unchanged and Reflecting a Similar Proportion of U.S. Production and Non-Supervisory JobsNEW YORK, May 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Following the release of the Employment Situation Report for April 2021 by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the U.S. Private Sector Job Quality Index (JQI)® has been revised to a level of 81.99, essentially unchanged from its revised level one month earlier and reflecting a similar proportion - relative to the prior month - of U.S. production and non-supervisory (P&NS) jobs paying less than the mean weekly income of all P&NS jobs (“Low Quality Jobs”), relative to those jobs paying above such mean. The JQI remains heavily impacted by the extraordinary disruption in the number and composition of private sector production and non-supervisory jobs since the beginning of the U.S. impact of the COVID19 global pandemic, with regard to which the following additional special factors should be noted: (i) the BLS Employment Situation Report for April reflects a net 218,000 increase in private sector payrolls, with the leisure and hospitality sector accounting for a 331,000 private sector gain and net losses in all other sectors combined. This is a trend change from the prior two months. (ii) Jobs in Low Quality sectors that laid off workers during the peak crisis months, and again in November 2020 through January 2021, have been slowly returning. But in April, only the leisure and hospitality sector saw improvement – with sectors such as retail and temporary employment actually losing jobs. (iii) the JQI may rise or fall for a period of time to the extent that such large numbers of Low Quality Jobs have been substantially eliminated or restored, as offset by the significantly higher benchmark mean weekly income, when compared to pre-pandemic levels, used in computing the index since the elimination of large numbers of Low Quality Jobs during the pandemic. The mean weekly wage income of all P&NS jobs as of the current reading (which reflects the level as of February 2021) rose to 863.55, a change of +0.92% from its revised level the month prior. The upward change in this series reflects a pause in the restoration of the low-wage/low-hours positions that had grown substantially in number over the course of the four years prior to the pandemic. The JQ-Instant™ preliminary read of the 266,000 gain in all private sector, non-farm payrolls for April 2021 shows that 46.79% of such gain in private sector jobs were in industry sectors offering P&NS jobs with an average weekly income below the mean weekly income of all P&NS jobs (i.e. Low Quality Jobs). This reading was due to the substantial gain in April of jobs in the leisure and hospitality sector (at the low-quality end), offset by higher quality jobs in professional and technical services and financial jobs, especially in the real estate sector. Daniel Alpert, co-creator of the U.S. Private Sector Job Quality Index, said "In April, only the leisure and hospitality sector saw improvement – with sectors such as retail and temporary employment actually losing jobs." For an explanatory video on the JQI, please see: http://www.vimeo.com/jqi. This news release presents data from the most recent JQI reading calculated through the month immediately prior to the month covered by this release. The JQI assesses job quality in the United States by measuring desirable higher-wage/higher-hour jobs versus lower-wage/lower-hour jobs. The JQI offers a near-real time analytical tool to policymakers, researchers and financial market participants with relevance to a variety of trends in the economy at large. The JQI analyzes a representative sample of the economy using production and non-supervisory job (P&NS) data from 180 different industry groups spanning across all 20 super-sectors into which the BLS groups establishments. The principal data utilized is contained in the Current Employment Survey (CES, also often referred to as the establishment survey) P&NS data on average weekly hours, average hourly wage and total employment for each given industry group (seasonally adjusted, in all cases). The JQI is updated on a monthly basis contemporaneously with the release of new CES data from the BLS. The JQ-Instant reading is for the month covered by this release and has implications for the likely direction of the JQI itself in future months. As the JQI is reported as a three-month rolling average of actual monthly readings, significant imbalances (readings varying from an even distribution between high and low quality jobs) in the JQ-Instant results would suggest future JQI readings moving in the direction of the dominant side of such distribution.

Could you have had COVID-19 and not even realized it? Possibly. "The majority of people who contract the coronavirus will experience mild symptoms, the most common being a high temperature and a new, dry and continuous cough. A smaller percentage of people will experience more severe symptoms," explains Dr. Daniel Atkinson, GP Clinical Lead at Treated.com. However, because the coronavirus actually has a spectrum of symptoms—some so mild they are barely noticeable or easily confused with something else—it can go unnoticed or undiagnosed. Read on to discover the 21 subtle signs you've already had coronavirus, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 Runny Nose, Sore Throat, and Congestion Dr. Atkinson maintains that the trifecta of a runny nose, sore throat, and congestion, can signify a mild case of COVID-19. However, because it "sounds, and likely feels, a lot like the common cold, or a hay fever allergy," many people likely brushed them off. 2 Reduced, or Loss of, Sense of Taste and Smell Some people who experience a loss of their taste and smell may have contracted the coronavirus. "It's a symptom that might accompany really mild symptoms, like those not dissimilar to the common cold—runny nose, congestion and sore throat—but it can also accompany the very mild symptoms, such as muscle aches, fatigue, fever and a continuous cough," Dr. Atkinson points out. While it is not fully understood yet why some people report experiencing a loss in taste and smell, it is thought that in the majority of cases the sense returns after no more than six weeks, he explains. 3 Reduced Appetite Dr. Atkinson adds that when your body is infected by a virus like COVID-19, your appetite can become reduced. "If this is accompanied by a loss of taste and smell it can make wanting to eat or drink really difficult," he explains. "It's really important to drink plenty of fluids to help your body combat the virus and minimize the symptoms and even if you don't feel like it, try to eat something, even if it's just a snack or a small meal." 4 Breathlessness As novel coronavirus is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract, things like coughing, a sore throat and breathlessness can occur as symptoms, explains Dr. Atkinson. While the most common is the dry, continuous cough often reported on, if you're feeling breathless—more so than usual—and if it happens when you're at rest, then it may be cause for concern and you should (or should have) sought medical advice straight away. 5 Tiredness and Fatigue When your body is fighting any kind of infection, it uses up energy. "Most people will feel tired or lethargic so won't be exercising or going to work when they're ill but some fitness enthusiasts insist on continuing with exercise to try and battle on through," explains Dr. Atkinson. This is not usually helpful, the body needs time to rest physically whilst the immune system does the work so take a break from the circuit training for a few days. "You should not ignore your body's signals," he adds. "Resting and sleeping while you're unwell is an essential part of your recovery." 6 "COVID Toes" Dermatologists have observed purple lesions on the feet and hands of some patients with COVID-19 infection, explains Caroline Nelson, MD, a Yale Medicine dermatologist. These lesions are most often found in otherwise asymptomatic children and young adults, and may be itchy or painful.While the association is still under investigation, this finding is often called "COVID toes." Importantly, severe COVID-19 infection may also increase the tendency of the blood to clot, depriving the skin of blood flow and leading to purple skin lesions. Subtle differences in appearance provide doctors with clues to differentiate causes of purple skin lesions associated with COVID-19 infection. 7 Pink Eye If you have recently suffered from conjunctivitis, a.k.a. pink eye, it could have been due to COVID-19. "Several reports suggest that SARS-CoV-2 can cause a mild follicular conjunctivitis otherwise indistinguishable from other viral causes, and possibly be transmitted by aerosol contact with conjunctiva," the American Academy of Ophthalmology recently said in a statement. This is why some experts are recommending contact lens wearers to switch to glasses during the pandemic. 8 Diarrhea or Nausea According to the CDC, "Some persons with COVID-19 have experienced gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea and nausea prior to developing fever and lower respiratory tract signs and symptoms." In fact, a study published in The American Journal of Gastroenterology found that digestive issues were more common in those with COVID-19 than previously thought, and that up to half of patients diagnosed complained about one of these symptoms. 9 A Fever Spike Did you have a fever that came and went so quickly you brushed it off? Well, it could have been COVID-19. According to the World Health Organization, 87.9% of 55,924 laboratory-confirmed cases of coronavirus reported a fever—making it by far the most common symptom. 10 Muscle Pain Perhaps you wrote off those body aches, pains, and soreness due to overexertion. Or maybe you thought you had the flu. However, according to the CDC muscle pain is a symptom of coronavirus. RELATED: Dr. Fauci Just Said When We'd Get Back to Normal 11 COVID Rashes "The skin is often a window into a person's health and may show signs of COVID-19 infection," explains Dr. Nelson. Rashes may present as small blisters, morbilliform ("measles-like") exanthems (many, often symmetric, pink-to-red bumps that can merge together), and hives (itchy red wheels on the skin). Purple skin lesions reported in patients with COVID-19 range from itchy to painful bumps on the hands and feet ("COVID toes") to angulated areas of skin injury from lack of blood flow."It is important to note that these skin signs are non-specific, meaning that they can be associated with other infections, systemic disorders, and medication reactions. It is important to seek medical advice from your physician," Dr. Nelson says. 12 Disorientation Some COVID-19 victims suffer from disorientation and confusion. One study published in JAMA found that over a third of hospitalized patients in Wuhan, China showed neurologic manifestations of the disease — including loss of balance or coordination, loss of consciousness, and seizures. 13 A Dry Cough A dry cough is one of the defining symptoms of COVID-19, according to the WHO. What is the difference between a wet and dry cough? As the name implies, a wet cough will likely produce mucus or phlegm, while a dry cough is, well, dry. 14 The Chills or Repeated Shaking The CDC made six new additions to their official list of COVID-19 symptoms. Amongst them was not only "chills" but "repeated shaking with chills." The symptom generally goes hand-in-hand with a fever. RELATED: Dr. Fauci Just Said When We'd Be Back to "Normal" 15 Throbbing Headache If you feel a jackhammer in your head, it may be COVID-19. "Findings from an observational study of more than 100 patients show headache onset may occur during the presymptomatic and/or symptomatic phases of COVID-19 progression and sometimes mimics tension or migraine headaches," reports Optometry Times. 16 Chest Pain "Some people say they continue to experience symptoms months after infection," reports Heart.org. "In doctor visits and on social media groups, a growing number of patients report lingering symptoms ranging from mild issues, such as continued loss of taste or smell, to more serious ones, such as heart palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath, extreme fatigue, cognitive difficulties or recurring fevers. Whether these symptoms eventually resolve or whether they signal permanent damage from the virus remains unknown." 17 Loss of Speech or Movement "People of all ages who experience fever and/or cough associated with difficulty breathing/shortness of breath, chest pain/pressure, or loss of speech or movement should seek medical attention immediately," reports WHO.RELATED: If You Feel This You May Have Already Had COVID Says Dr. Fauci 18 You Become Forgetful "Our experience with previous forms of coronaviruses suggest that in the long-term patients may develop depression, insomnia, Parkinson's disease, memory loss, or accelerated aging in the brain," says Dr. Majid Fotuhi, MD, Ph.D., who is the medical director of NeuroGrow Brain Fitness Center in Northern Virginia and an affiliate staff at Johns Hopkins Medicine. "For those recovering from COVID-19, I recommend regular exercise, eating a heart healthy diet, reducing stress, and improving sleep; these are critical ways patients can rejuvenate their brain and minimize having poor outcomes in the future." 19 You Were Early Last Year If you were sick in January or February and brushed it off as the flu or a cold, it could have actually been COVID-19. While the first known case of coronavirus in the United States was reported in early January, community spread didn't appear to be an issue—or so we thought. In fact, it wasn't until late February that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed the first case of COVID-19 in a patient in California who had no known contact with anyone who had been diagnosed with the virus or no travel history to an outbreak area. However, recently it was confirmed that there were two coronavirus-related deaths as early as February in California. Since the COVID outbreak took place during peak cold and flu season, it's quite possible that you were battling coronavirus and didn't know it. 20 You Spent Time in a Hotspot If you spent some time in any of the early coronavirus hotspots—specifically indoor restaurants, bars, places of worship, or offices—and felt under the weather, it could have been COVID-19. WHO added many of the places or situations where the virus had the potential to spread in an airborne manner involved enclosed spaces where people were likely to be "shouting, talking, or singing.""In these outbreaks, aerosol transmission, particularly in these indoor locations where there are crowded and inadequately ventilated spaces where infected persons spend long periods of time with others, cannot be ruled out," the WHO confessed. 21 Be Concerned if You Were Around Others Who Tested Positive If you were around other people who tested positive for COVID-19, there is a good chance you had it too. According to research, an overwhelming amount of people are asymptomatic carriers. In most of the study groups, they were living in the same area as others who tested positive. So, if someone in your house was sick, but you never showed symptoms, there is a good chance you had it, too. 22 There is Only One Way to Check if You've Already Had Coronavirus Dr. Atkinson points out that the only way to truly know if you had COVID-19 is by using an antibody test, a test that confirms whether or not someone had been infected with the virus in the past. Although note that no test is 100% accurate, including these—and some people who have had COVID-19 may show no antibodies. Call your doctor to ask for one—or if you think you currently have COVID-19.

NEW YORK, May 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New York REIT Liquidating LLC (the “Company” or the “LLC”), which was formed to complete the liquidation of the assets previously held by New York REIT, Inc., announced today it has filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. Distributions On May 4, 2021, the Company declared a cash liquidating distribution of $0.25 per unit to be paid on May 18, 2021 to unitholders of record as of May 11, 2021. Future liquidating distributions will depend on, among other things, the timing and amount of cash flow distributions from our interest in Worldwide Plaza. There can be no assurance that future distributions will be similar to the current distribution. On March 24, 2021, the Company paid a cash liquidating distribution of $0.18 per unit to unitholders of record as of March 17, 2021. Liquidation Status Holders of membership interests in the Company are reminded that the conversion of New York REIT, Inc. to the LLC occurred on November 7, 2018. As previously disclosed, membership interests in the LLC are generally not transferable except by will, intestate succession or operation of law. The Company has sold all its properties except for the remaining 50.1% interest in Worldwide Plaza. The Company has no debt outstanding other than its pro-rata share of the non-recourse debt on Worldwide Plaza. Exclusive of the distribution to be paid on May 18, 2021, the Company has paid aggregate cash liquidating distributions of $60.69 per unit. Financial Results Liquidation Basis of Accounting Based on the liquidation basis of accounting, the Company reported that estimated net assets in liquidation at March 31, 2021 are currently estimated to result in future liquidating distributions of approximately $19.40 per unit. After giving effect to the $0.18 per unit distribution paid on March 24, 2021, the current estimate of future liquidating distributions represents a $0.08 per unit increase from the Company’s estimate at December 31, 2020. The estimate of future liquidating distributions includes projections of revenues to be earned and costs and expenses to be incurred during the next 12 months including the estimated cost to dispose of our remaining investment. There is inherent uncertainty with these projections and, accordingly, the projections could change materially based on a number of factors both within and outside of the Company’s control including public health crises, such as the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”), market conditions, the performance of the underlying property asset, the timing of sale and any changes in the underlying assumptions of projected cash flows. The current estimate of net assets in liquidation at March 31, 2021 has been estimated based on undiscounted cash flow projections and assumes a final liquidation on March 31, 2022, even though the actual timing of the sale of the Company’s remaining interest in Worldwide Plaza is indeterminate, given the continuing impact of COVID-19 on the commercial real estate market, ongoing tenant negotiations and other items in the property business plan. Based on these factors and the actual timing of the sale of this property, the final liquidation of the Company is subject to future events and uncertainties. Liabilities are carried at their contractual amounts due as adjusted for the impact of timing of the planned liquidation. COVID-19 Impact The COVID-19 pandemic and government protections thereto continue to impact rent collections from our retail and amenities tenants at Worldwide Plaza. As of March 31, 2021, the property collected 100% of the office rents that were due for the year to date period. With respect to the retail and amenities tenants of the property, approximately $3.6 million of base rents due for 2020 and the first quarter of 2021 have not been paid as those tenants seek rent concessions for the time period during which they were required to be closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The unpaid rents represent approximately 3.1% of total rents due at the property for the period from April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021. Management of Worldwide Plaza is evaluating each rent relief request on a tenant by tenant basis. Not all tenant relief requests will result in the granting of relief, and the Company anticipates that a majority of any rent concessions will be in the form of a rent deferral and not rent forgiveness. Worldwide Plaza does not plan to forgo any of its contractual rights under its lease agreements in connection with any relief requests. To date, the impact of COVID-19 has not been material to the Company, however, it is not possible to estimate the impact of the pandemic on cash collections in future quarters.
