Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced that all schools in the state will remain closed for the rest of the school year, and a decision on summer school will be made by the end of the month. He instructed schools to begin planning for a fall opening that incorporated social distancing and other current public safety mandates.
There were another thousand new cases of the virus in the state since Thursday, and more than 300 deaths. Cuomo said it appeared that the virus's decline has plateaued. He called for hospitals to provide more information on any new cases so the state could develop a more targeted response to get the rate of infection to decline still further.
