NYC Health Chief Declares Latest COVID Peak Over; Toddler Mask Mandate Ends Monday
New York City's health commissioner says there's "good news" to report as the city looks to emerge from its most recent COVID-19 wave, which saw all five boroughs vault into the CDC's top risk category for community viral spread for the latter half of May. The federal health agency's weekly update is still pending, and the city health department still indicates a high alert level, but a series of tweets from Dr. Ashwin Vasan indicate a downgraded alert appears likely to come with the newest data set. "Cases have fallen since May 23, giving us confidence that we have passed the peak and we are heading into a safer environment," the city's top doctor wrote in his thread. Nice!
