“Today’s announcement that we have reversed progress in reopening schools and businesses in nine neighborhoods is in large part a result of poor planning combined with bad communication. The City has continually failed to work with communities that have language or cultural barriers to stop the spread of COVID-19 and not invested adequate resources to help lower-income areas that are among the most vulnerable to the virus. To stop the spread, the City must immediately deputize community organizations in these neighborhoods who have the credibility and ability to educate and organize New Yorkers in their areas to take care of themselves and their neighbors.
