Let's place bets- I think he either has COVID himself or is on the phone with the UFT right now.
Please share the update
Someone posted on YBM that NYC has hit the 3% threshold :-((
What I found on Twitter:
Josefa Velásquez @J__Velasquez
"Carranza called both the city teachers and principals unions Wednesday morning to inform them schools would close, only to walk back the pronouncement about 20 minutes later, telling the unions that de Blasio was still working on a decision"
uh oh. https://twitter.com/jill_jorgensen/status/1329124197717733385?s=21
Down side: he's late because he's trying to avoid telling us schools are closed.
Up side: if he never holds a press meeting, he can't actually close schools, so here's hoping he is 24 hours late to his briefing.
It's a very bad sign...
He's preparing his bunker to hide from angry parents when he announces that schools are closing.
