The NYC virus rate remains below the school closing line, for now

NEW YORK – Students, parents and teachers continue to see coronavirus test results in New York City, as the latest numbers fall below the city’s threshold for closing school buildings.

The city has set this limit at 3% of citywide coronavirus tests that come back positive over the course of seven days.

Mayor Bill de Blasio warned Friday that the price could cross that line over the weekend. He says it didn’t happen on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Gov. Andrew Cuomo suggested that the city base its decision not only on a 3% mark for citywide tests, but also on a rate of positive results among tests specifically administered on school students and staff.
