/ / News

The percentage of people who tested positive for COVID-19 in New York City surged above 3% on Monday for the first time since early June, as a cluster of cases emerged in a handful of Brooklyn ZIP codes, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Tuesday. The city will begin issuing tickets to people who defy the state’s mask mandate and could close some non-essential businesses down again in an effort to stop the cluster from becoming more widespread.
