On this edition of The Weekend Debrief – the panel discusses a series of interesting headlines, as the state and region navigates its way toward reopening. Ted Baker and Josh Durso break down the biggest headlines of the week, including:
– Questions about New York’s unemployment system as 90,000 still sit in ‘pending purgatory’ as its been dubbed on social media by applicants.
– The future of public hearings and meetings of governing bodies in the region, as cities and counties struggle with getting their meetings online for the public.
– The ways in which New York will ‘reimagine’ education for young people amid the pandemic. The American Federation of Teachers said in a report this week that classes would need to be 12-15 students large, and offer staggered schedules so that entire student bodies weren’t on-campus at the same time.
– And what does reopening of hospital facilities across the region for elective surgeries tell us about how reopening businesses will go?
