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.
