Governor Cuomo is giving the green light for schools in New York state to reopen this fall.
He said school districts need to have discussions with parents and post information for them online.
Cuomo said the state’s COVID-19 infection rate is very low, but they will continue to monitor it, leading up to the first day of school. In addition, other state guidelines include wearing face masks inside, when social distancing isn’t possible, and regular cleaning of classrooms, COVID-19 screenings and contact tracing for anyone who gets infected.
