Mayor de Blasio Re-Evaluating Indoor Dining


Mayor Bill de Blasio is having second thoughts about the future of indoor dining, amid a spike in coronavirus cases.

The positivity rate in New York City has climbed to a 7-day average of 2.26 percent.

“We're seeing household transmission, we're seeing community spread, we're seeing things we have not seen in a long time and we have to stop them,” de Blasio said.

The mayor said there are certain parts of the city that need special attention. That means there will be increased testing efforts and the distribution of masks.

“We have to stop a second wave from happening here. It is getting dangerously close,” de Blasio said.
