In New Jersey, the mayor of a city is concerned that an increase in the number of cases is linked to people going to parties.
NEW YORK CITY
When child care centers reopen, registration is a fraction of what it was in most centers. Students and parents will be asked a series of questions – for example, does the student or family attend are there any symptoms or have they traveled outside the US in the past two weeks?
Students will also have their temperature checked when they enter the establishment, and students over the age of 2 will be reminded to wear masks and wash their hands.
Twenty-two branches of the New York public library system will reopen with a transfer service.
No one died of New York’s coronavirus on Sunday. The mayor also announced the opening of 10 new test centers in the Bronx.
The mayor of Westfield, New Jersey, said an increase in the number of cases in the community has been linked to people going to parties. Eleven cases announced on Saturday concerned the 18-25 age group.
Mayor Shelley Brindle said parents and families should reconsider organizing or attending graduation parties.
Authorities reported 19 new deaths and 349 new cases of COVID on Sunday.
Connecticut is in a “very lucky place” with the coronavirus, says the state’s epidemiologist, because the deaths have virtually disappeared and the state’s transmission rate is among the lowest in the country.
Connecticut recorded more than 100 coronavirus deaths per day from mid-April to late April, with a peak of 204 deaths on April 20.
But now businesses, including restaurants, have reopened across the state, and the state reported a daily count of zero COVID-19 deaths twice this week.
NEW YORK STATE

MASQUE TRUMP WEARS
President Donald Trump wore a mask during a visit to a military hospital on Saturday, the first time the President was seen in public with the type of face covering recommended by health officials as a precaution against spread or infection with the new coronavirus.
Trump flew by helicopter to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on the outskirts of Washington to meet injured service members and caregivers of COVID-19 patients. Leaving the White House, he told reporters, “When you are in the hospital, in particular … I think he should wear a mask. ”
Trump wore a mask in the hallway of Walter Reed when he started his visit. He was not wearing one when he got off the helicopter from the establishment.
COVID PARTY DEATH
A San Antonio doctor said that one of his hospital patients, a 30-year-old man, died after attending a so-called “COVID party” – a bizarre trend where young people intentionally meet someone infected.
Dr. Jane Appleby, chief medical officer of the Methodist Hospital and the Methodist Children’s Hospital, said the patient thought the coronavirus pandemic was a hoax.
“He thought he was young and that he was invincible and would not be affected … One of the heartbreaking things he said to his nurse was:” I think I made a mistake ” She said.
