Catholics schools in the Diocese of Brooklyn have asked New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to permit four schools in areas of Brooklyn and Queens without widespread cases of coronavirus to continue in-person learning.
Three Brooklyn Catholic academies and one parish school had been operating under stringent coronavirus restrictions, but the schools were shut down Oct. 6 along, with about 300 others in the area.
The closed Catholic schools are St. Athanasius Catholic Academy, Our Lady of Grace, St. Edmund Elementary School, and Good Shepherd Catholic Academy. The enrollment totals 1,070 students.
Their combined enrollment is 1,070, and there has been one confirmed case of Covid-19 among them.
