The DOE just announced that all schools will be closed.

Does this apply to private schools?

What about daycares?

Not unless cuomo puts NYC in an orange zone which he’s threatening to do. THAT will be one epic battle.

If you really must know this is because the union fought for closure at 3% and it’s not from the govt. so it actually proves nothing.

Which other parts of NY were placed in a red zone when numbers in the area shot up over 3 percent? Cuz recently there have definitely been areas of NY eligible for red-zoning by zip code. Instead, since its not the Jews, and there's nobody fun to single out, the whole city gets affected, zip code policy be darned.

What is the positivity rate in NYC schools? Have you checked?

The positivity rate in schools is only 0.19 percent. Possibly the safest place to be.

Cuomo doesn’t want the schools closed.
He wants the decision to be made on an individual level based on percentages of each individual school.

I doubt that private schools will be closed at all.

Wait, so Cuomo wants different areas of the state to behave differently based on their individual covid situation? Isnt that the exact same approach that Trump had on a federal level when dealing with individual states? And something Cuomo had a problem with?

It actually makes a lot of sense as you yourself wrote in a previous post. Schools have proven not to be a source of transmission so there’s no reason for them to be closed.

De Blasio only has the authority to close the public schools , state approval is required for private school closures and it doesn’t look like it’s coming anytime soon .

I didn't understand that at all to be what Cuomo said.

Cuomo will deal with the red, orange, yellow zones, and there are now ways to test out of in person school closures in orange. Maybe someone understood that to be "case by case" but it's one rule that schools have the option to use to reopen sooner legally if they end up in an orange zone.

So, yes, he's allowing more flexibility but it's all under 1 rule for all. (yes, I know, in theory because we all debate what it "really" is)

So today majority of Flatbush switched from orange zone to yellow zone but Cuomo said that if NYC as a whole hits 3% (according to the state, which it didn’t) then he will make the whole nyc orange zone meaning all schools close for 4 days and then test and if negative can reopen. But that means a full week closed again! Unless somehow bec we are the same as we were and we tested everyone and continue to test we can stay open with that same plan??? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤔🤔🤔🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

So it would be better to stay an orange zone than to go from orange to yellow and then back to orange, because going from yellow to orange automatically triggers a four day shutdown. Is that what you’re saying?
