Situation Room Summary

The data below reflects Mayor Adams and Chancellor Banks Stay Safe, Stay Open plan, a multi-pronged approach for safely returning to school in-person for NYC schools, which includes: 

  • An expansion of the nation’s largest in-school surveillance testing program to double the number of individuals tested in each school including both unvaccinated students and vaccinated students, as well as staff.
  • Every student and adult in a classroom with a positive case will immediately receive an at-home rapid test kit and will need to take two tests in five days.
  • Making vaccination easily accessible and available for all, a vaccine mandate for all in-school staff members, universal indoor masking, physical distancing, and fully functioning ventilation systems backed up by two air purifiers in every classroom.

Classroom Closure: a Situation Room intervention where the positive case is either a student, teacher, paraprofessional, or other types of classroom-based educators, and the most likely result is an entire classroom quarantining.

Partial Classroom Quarantine: a Situation Room intervention where the positive case is a student, teacher, paraprofessional, or other types of classroom-based educators.

Non-Classroom Quarantine: a Situation Room intervention where the staff type is someone who wouldn't necessarily be in a classroom and does not require the quarantine of a classroom e.g. school secretary, parent coordinator, facilities staff, and the most likely result does not include the closure of a classroom.

This information was compiled by the DOE COVID Response Situation Room—a multi-agency partnership between the Department of Education, Department of Health and Mental Health, and the Test & Trace Corps—to facilitate a rapid response to positive COVID-19 cases in public schools.
