City schools in Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods encountering Covid flare-ups will again be shut beginning Tuesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo reported Monday.
Cuomo made the declaration in a Midtown Manhattan press instructions one day after Mayor Bill de Blasio looked for his approval to close down nine ZIP codes in the precincts discount.
“I would not send my kid to a school in a problem area group,” he said. “I won’t suggest or permit any New York City family to send their kid to a school that I wouldn’t send my youngster.
“These bunches must be assaulted,” he proceeded. “New York City has bunches.”
Cuomo said that he settled on the choice after a “great, cooperative” telephone call with de Blasio, city Comptroller Scott Stringer, City Council President Corey Johnson and Michael Mulgrew, leader of the ground-breaking United Federation of Teachers association.
Cuomo endorsed de Blasio’s arrangement not exactly seven days subsequent to rapping the city for not doing what’s necessary to pack down on the expanding flare-ups, a point he again focused on Monday without explicitly naming the objective of his comments.
“Authorization is thoughtful. You know why? Since authorization spares lives,” Cuomo said. “Any standard is just comparable to the authorization.
“Such a large number of neighborhood governments are not doing requirement,” he proceeded. “Alerts are not requirement.”
The city Department of Health on Thursday engaged other civil offices with the position to screen organizations that consistently ridicule pandemic precautionary measures, however de Blasio revealed the arrangement for the discount closure on Sunday.
