New York City Schools to Remain Open for Now, de Blasio Says

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “New York City Schools to Remain Open for Now, de Blasio Says” – below is their description.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says the city’s coronavirus test results have not reached the level that would trigger a shutdown of public school buildings, so schools will remain open for now. De Blasio said the percentage of people testing positive citywide for COVID-19 is 3.2%, with a seven-day rolling average of 2.74%. De Blasio had warned last week that schools could close if the city crossed the threshold set earlier of 3% of coronavirus tests citywide coming back positive over a seven-day period. The mayor said an increase in the number of COVID-19 tests inthe city has “changed the reality” and allowed the city to stay under the numerical threshold. De Blasio also urged New Yorkers to get inoculated against the seasonal flu, calling it the “most most important flu shot you will get in your life.” Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/2TwO8Gm Bloomberg Quicktake brings you live global news and original shows spanning business, technology, politics and culture.
