NY is in a state of emergency, and is expected to be the #1 state in the US to be impacted by the Coronavirus; much more than Washington State or California.

Shutting down all NY schools throughout Coronavirus breakout is vital.

Already, many cities/counties in NY state, such as Westchester county (and other areas of the US and the world) have closed schools to keep their citizens of many ages safe and at a reduced risk of becoming victims of COVID-19.

In NYC, the largest city of NY, the US, and one of the biggest cities and trade hubs of the world, over 1.4 million NYC public school students and nearly 100 thousand NYC DOE staff are put at high risk commuting to and from (especially by city or school bus), and attending crowded schools.

In multiple NYC areas, including the borrough Bronx, there are many confirmed cases of COVID-19. Many private schools have closed throughout the entire city amid confirmation of cases. However, NYC public schools, including those that have had persons with COVID-19, are still open.

Due to poor decisions, the risks of Corona Virus spreading to other NYC and NY areas are high.

Closing NYC and NY state public schools is a large and effective step of reducing the rate of COVID-19 spread until cures are found.
