New Restrictions Possible in NYC if Increase Continues

The number of coronavirus cases in New York City continue to rise and Mayor de Blasio says new restrictions are possible if the increase continues.

The city’s 7-day positivity rate is now above 2.3 percent, moving closer to the 3 percent threshold that could trigger action.

“You could see restrictions in certain industries. You could see a full-scale closures. You could see limits on hours. All of those things are possible,” de Blasio said.

If the positivity rate reaches 3 percent, all schools in the city would automatically go to remote learning.
