Today, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio released the following statement regarding two school closings because of new COVID-19 coronavirus cases.

“This morning, we are closing two co-located schools, the Laboratory School of Finance and Technology and South Bronx Preparatory: A College Board School, due to a student’s self-confirmed positive case of COVID-19. The Health Department will trace close contacts of this individual to recommend quarantine and testing as necessary.

"The Department of Education will completely disinfect the building, and it will be closed for an initial 24-hour period.

We are taking every precaution to keep people safe, and we will keep everyone informed as we learn more through the day.”
