It is unclear if New York schools can open by September as a new disease potentially linked to COVID-19 emerges in children, Nick Reisman reports at NY State of Politics.
Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday in an interview with WAMC said he was yet to make a decision on schools reopening either for summer session or in September.
“I’m not there yet,” Cuomo said. “Every two weeks the situation changes. Children were not infected, now we’re looking at 103 cases where children are developing an inflammatory syndrome.”
Cuomo added, “Parents are going to have a very different attitude about schools,” referring to a new respiratory virus found in children, with more than 100 cases in New York. Three children have died.
