Apr 17, 2020

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio delivers his daily COVID-19 update.

New York City will remain quiet in May with more events cancelled because of the coronavirus.  Mayor de Blasio says parades; concerts and rallies along with other non-essential permitted events will not take place in May. De Blasio says it’s not looking good for June either…after being asked about the Pride March.

“We got a lot we got to get done to be safe for June.  We are far from out of the woods.  So we are talking to people who organize those big June events.”

Meanwhile, the mayor is announcing that more walk in coronavirus testing sites will open in the coming days in all five boroughs.

“Ten new community based testing sites in the places that need it most, scaling up fast.”

They’ll be able to do thousands of tests per week and will target areas in the city hardest hit with the virus.
