COVID-19 Updates & Information
Updated Sept. 1, 2022: Prospect Schools continues to track COVID-related news. On August 16, 2022, the New York City Department of Education released “Fall 2022 COVID-19 Guidance.”
Updated May 20, 2022: Prospect Schools has been tracking COVID-related news, data, and public health advisories, including the recent upward trend in cases in NYC. Earlier this week the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene raised the city’s threat level to High, and recently Mayor Adams announced that the City’s health officials are strongly recommending that all individuals wear masks in indoor settings. We follow the guidance of public health authorities, and right now these authorities are encouraging – but not mandating – indoor mask wearing.
Therefore, we highly encourage the use of high-grade masks (N95, K95, KF94) indoors, but are not yet requiring this measure.
We will continue to closely monitor public health guidance should there be any changes recommended.
