New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio canceled all events on his schedule Monday, marking the first time the city’s leader will not hold a briefing on the coronavirus during a weekday in more than 100 days.
De Blasio’s office sent an email to media outlets a short time before his scheduled 9:30 a.m. briefing from City Hall announcing that all events had been cancelled.
Press Secretary Freddi Goldstein, the mayor is under the weather.
“The Mayor woke up feeling under the weather and is going to take the day to recuperate and work from home. We expect to be back to our regular programming tomorrow,” Goldstein said via Twitter.
