All New York Schools Can Open in the Fall

NEW YORK (WABC) – Governor Andrew Cuomo announced today that all New York’s 750 school districts can open in the fall.

Cuomo’s decision was based on the seven-day rolling infection rate in the state’s 10 regions. The infection rate in the state was at 1% on Friday with 5 deaths.

New York state is establishing guidelines for how schools can safely reopen that include  face masks when social distancing is not possible, regular cleaning of classrooms, COVID-19 screenings and contact tracing for anyone who gets infected.

The Governor says  they will continue to monitor the infection rate leading up to the first day of school.
