He said summer school would be conducted remotely and that it was too early to decide on in-person schooling for the fall.

"Schools obviously pose risks".

Moreover, the spread is continuing in those communities, and "that's where the new cases are coming from", said Cuomo.

Cuomo said the number of countries that have reported cases of a rare inflammatory syndrome impacting children and linked to COVID-19 had almost doubled in the past week to 13, while the number of states with cases increased by eight to 25. Those affected may experience stomach pain, vomiting, fever and possibly a rash, according to experts. Back in March, Cuomo's Health Department ordered that the state's nursing homes must accept recovering COVID-19 patients.

As states across the country begin to slowly reopen their economies, business owners in NY, which had the most severe coronavirus outbreak, are getting restless as local lockdown orders remain in place.

United Kingdom to announce quarantines for global travellers
You will be expected to comply with Ireland's self-isolation policy before making onward travel to the rest of the UK. A full list of exemptions to the rule will be published on Friday on gov.uk.

New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo has some undistinguished company.

De Blasio said Friday that in order to enter the first phase of the reopening, including manufacturing and retail with curbside pickup, the city must stay below thresholds for three things: the daily number of people admitted to hospitals for suspected COVID-19, the total number of patients in intensive care at public hospitals and the citywide percentage of people testing positive for the virus.

De Blasio discussed the city's key indicators during his daily coronavirus briefing Thursday and said NYC had "a pretty good day".

However, it's unlikely the city and state will consider reopening Staten Island or other boroughs ahead of other parts of New York City. "It's not acceptable, no matter what we're up against, that anyone would be hungry in this city".

The city has fired two vendors whose meals fell short of those standards, said Kathryn Garcia, the sanitation commissioner who de Blasio named as "food czar" during the pandemic.
