NYC schools will close after the city reached a 3% Covid positivity rate threshold

Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted that schools are being closed out of “an abundance of caution.”

“We must fight back the second wave of COVID-19,” he wrote in the tweet.

New York City is the largest public school district in the country.

CNN has obtained a copy of a letter sent Wednesday from New York City School Chancellor Richard Carranza to families and students that confirms all school buildings will be closed beginning November 19, and students will transition to remote learning.

“Given recent increases in transmission, we have reached a point in our City’s infection rate that requires all students to transition to remote learning,” Carranza wrote in the letter.

Carranza’s letter indicated that all families and students can continue to go to any school building between 9 a.m. and noon to pick up three free grab and go meals.

“We have been the only major school district in the nation to reopen our buildings,” he wrote. “The benefit to hundreds of thousands of students is incredible, as school communities have reconnected in person for learning, growing, and supporting one another.”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during a briefing on Wednesday that the state is in a “dangerous” situation and a number of factors could fuel a surge in positive cases. Cuomo cited Covid-19 fatigue, cold weather keeping people indoors and the upcoming holidays as possible factors.

Cuomo said that reopening schools in NYC would require a different plan than the rest of the state because by sheer volume it wouldn’t be possible to test every student in the city.
