NYC Mayor Proposes Lockdown on Nine NYC ZIP Codes


New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is proposing shutting down schools and nonessential businesses in parts of New York City effective Wednesday amid a COVID-19 surge, a move that would represent a significant step back in the city’s reopening process.

Calling it a difficult day, de Blasio announced the proposal Sunday in an effort to get a handle on spikes of coronavirus throughout certain neighborhoods and stop the spread.

The neighborhoods of concern include:

Far Rockaway
– Edgemere/Far Rockaway — 11691

Southern Brooklyn
-Gravesend/Homecrest — 11223
– Midwood — 11230
– Borough Park — 11219
– Bensonhurst/Mapleton — 11204
– Gerritsen Beach/Homecrest/ Sheepshead Bay — 11229
– Flatlands/Midwood — 11210

Central Queens
– Kew Gardens — 11415
– Kew Gardens Hills/Pomonok — 11367

The restrictions will be in place for either 14 days or 28 days, depending on how long the ZIP codes remain under 3% positivity.
