Always good to have you on Welcome back to W N. Y C. Good morning, Brian. And thank you very much for having me back. So, your statement says, Quote I strongly disagree with Mayor De Blasio is decision to close down schools in New York City. I want to make clear to our residents that I will do everything I can to keep our schools open, unquote. Why criticize the mayor by name there rather than just make your own decision for Nassau County. Well, I felt it was important, since this is really dominating the news cycle and, of course, New York City News really dominates the news in the suburbs. I just wanted to make it very clear to our residents. That the safest place for kids right now is in school. The schools, you know, it's a little bit different in Nassau County. So in the city, the mayor is in charge of the schools. Out here in Nassau County. We have 56 independent school district with their own elected boards.

Um, but my goal is to make sure that our health department, our county Health department Is working with them, helping interpret the guidance, helping them with contact tracing etcetera, and we've made very good relationships. So my goal is to get the word out there that it's very important for kids to stay in school right now. As I said, it's the safest place for kids are 56 school districts have really and I have kids in public school myself. They've done a fantastic job at this social distancing and ensuring math compliance and having kids on alternate days and all of that. They've really recalibrated quickly, and we're not seeing transmission within the school buildings. So you know, you did mention where a 3.5 yesterday.

It's not happening in the businesses and the gyms and the bowling alleys. It's really happening at these social gatherings, and I know that a lot of people have Covad fatigue. But people are still having these sweet sixteens and going off to other states to have big weddings and then coming back. That's where we're seeing the uptick. So I'm saying to everyone in the You can hear my voice. If you know you're not worried about yourself. You're not worried about your family. Think about the kids who need to be in school. Think about the businesses that need to operate. Keep people working. And, um, you know, as I said, school is safe right now, and I'm closing schools should be a last resort. That's what the CDC Protocol say in anything like a flu like pandemic Closing schools is the last resort. In March. It made sense.
