Gov. Cuomo: All students in NY can return to classroom

Cuomo, though, ultimately will determine whether de Blasio's plans for New York City schools will be sufficient for a safe reopening for the 2020-2021 school year.

Every region in New York State now has a daily positive test rate of around 1% or lower, according to the state's regional dashboard.

The statewide infection rate was 1 percent as of Friday, with just five new deaths with COVID-19 reported.

'Everywhere in the state, every region is below the threshold that we established, ' Cuomo said during the conference call with reporters. "That's true for every region in the state, period". State and city officials say it's because harsh restrictions worked; some believe the population reached herd immunity because of how widely the virus spread.

Garcetti also indicated that county health inspectors and other city representatives would be on the lookout for violations. The penalties also include water and power shutoffs and occupancy permit revocation.


In the weeks leading up to the decision, Gov. Cuomo stressed the plans schools and districts had to submit were not concrete and were meant to be submitted early so parents could look them over and voice their concerns.

One positive COVID-19 test in a classroom would be enough to quarantine an entire classroom for two weeks under the mayor's plan, and two cases confirmed within a school would shut the entire school for two weeks. With the social distancing required under the state's current guidelines, there is simply not enough space in Riverhead's buildings to fit all of its students at one time - nor are there enough teachers or staff. "If the parents don't send their students, then you're not really opening schools", said Cuomo.

The UFT argued that New York City's plan did not meet the "safety standards our children and school staff need".

"The approach we will use is blended learning".

Even with progress being made and agreements occurring with new partners, the wait for a vaccine may still be a while. Canada wasn't the only country to announce a major supply deal Wednesday.


As part of the model, students will rotate in groups between in-person and remote learning. He said he will ask school districts to post their remote learning plan and require "discussion sessions" with parents.

In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio has warned that schools can reopen if the positivity rate is below three percent.

Governor Cuomo Friday said all school districts in the state may open in September. Under the blended learning plan, most students would be in school buildings for two or three days a week. But efforts can't stop there.

The state's school year is scheduled to start in September.
