It’s been weeks, but the state says a decision on social distancing guidance is coming soon.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention already made a decision on updating requirements for schools, which states that 3 feet is enough.
However, school leaders across New York have been frustrated by the state’s silence on the matter.
On Monday, he said there would be a decision within a week.
“The reason it is taking time is it is very controversial and I would just suggest you note that,” Cuomo said. “Because if you take one position, you will get many comments, I promise you.”
State health officials say they have been looking at different classroom environments around New York, which has complicated the decision making process.
