New York State recorded its lowest COVID-19 death toll and hospitalizations over the weekend since the pandemic began. This amid news that a student returning from Florida may have infected several graduation parties in Chappaqua last weekend. No decisions have yet been made about schools in New York, where the governor said they are preparing for a September opening. He told NBC’s Meet The Press that the numbers are good now, but September is still two months away.
