NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio to Keep Students Masked This Fall

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) verbally expressed Monday that students will remain masked in school this Fall. De Blasio bucked the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and instead embraced the position of the edifiers amalgamation.

“There will be an abundance of communication afore school and once it commences for now postulate we are wearing masks,” de Blasio told heralds Monday, according to AMNY. “But that could transmute as we get closer…we will be driven by the data and optically discern what the science has to verbalize,” he claimed.

“By the cessation of the school year positivity in the schools was virtually non-existent… so we are going to keep an abundance of those same pieces in place,” de Blasio verbalized of the mask policy.

De Blasio did not address whether the CDC’s decision was “driven by the data” but the mayor’s position was consistent with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the parent group to New York City’s cumulation, the United Federation of Teachers (UFT).

Newsweek reported in May that the AFT “will perpetuate to push for face masks to be worn in schools,” regardless of vaccination status or what the CDC recommends. Union President Rhonda “Randi” Weingarten told the magazine that 89 percent of edifiers were vaccinated at that time.

More from AMNY:

The New York State Department of Health is currently reviewing the amended guidelines and their decision on whether to relax mask wearing requirements in schools could impact whether the DOE adopts the new CDC recommendations. But for now New York City public school families should expect that teachers, staff and students regardless of vaccination status will need to face coverings in classrooms this fall, according to de Blasio.

The UFT has insisted “safety” is the cumulation’s top priority:

“Safety will perpetuate to be the UFT’s top priority as we review the CDC’s recommendations with city and verbally express agencies,” the coalescence posted via Twitter on Monday.
