Melanie Hartzog, director of the NYC office of management and budget, said that activities include arts, recreation, tutoring, and field trips "where possible." Personal protective equipment like face coverings and hand sanitizer are provided by the city and only 15 students will be allowed to be in a classroom at any given time. Nurses are also available for on-site visits and telehealth for all programs from 7am-7pm.
“So many parents though have said that they can’t make it work if they don’t get more childcare,” de Blasio told AMNY reporters. “We’ve been trying to find every way to create new childcare and to build it from scratch, honestly.”
