What information is your administrator getting about COVID-19 from the DOE?
Review this document to see what information is your principal receiving from the Central NYC DOE regarding COVID quarantines, test and trace, and diagnostic tests.
Note that there is a disconnect between what the UFT is stating to be true and what the DOE is mandating. You are your own best advocate. Review these materials (linked) and then follow up with your UFT Chapter Leader, District Rep, and/or Borough Safety Rep.
