Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza told principals Wednesday that all in-person learning in the nation’s largest school system will shut down due to a citywide rise in coronavirus cases. Carranza said the infection rate average over the last seven days hit the closure threshold of 3 percent and that building activity would be suspended. “The closure of buildings is temporary; we will work diligently alongside other City agencies and every other New Yorker to bring this transmission rate back down and get back to in-person learning as quickly and as safely as possible,” Carranza’s email stated.
