Mayor de Blasio Reveals NYC School Attendance and Random COVID-19 Test Results

Mayor de Blasio shared statistics on the NYC School System attendance of students as well as indicators concerning their health and safety.

Regarding attendance, over 280,000 children have attended in-person schooling with an average attendance of 85.3% each day.

He mentioned how the city’s random COVID-19 testing program which surveyed hundreds of schools yielded a positivity rate of 0.15 %.

“We are seeing more and more evidence of just how safe our schools are and more and more evidence that kids are benefiting from in-person education,” said the Mayor.

The Mayor also stated that COVID testing data would be made available on a regular basis for parents and New Yorkers in need of clarity.

“The COVID testing data will be available at the DOE website at schools.nyc.gov/covidresults. And it will have test results for every borough, for every school that’s been tested and a complete case map for all known cases in New York City public schools. And that would be available at schools.nyc.gov/casemap.”
