Nothing,

It's his MO, it just buys time so he can stretch this out longer.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Dear Parents,

As most of you know, the question of summer overnight camp opening is still being debated in Albany. The date of overnight camp is fast approaching, and we still have not received the green light from Governor Cuomo to open camp. AJCO, a group of camp directors and a medical team (including top infectious disease doctors) have developed a detailed plan that will allow camps to open safely. This plan includes testing before camp and lockdown once camp begins. With COVID-19, BH, declining so rapidly, our medical board feels that camp is a safe place for our children.

OUR WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY IS VERY SMALL!

We need to contact the governor's office by Sunday night. We are enclosing the link to contact the governor's office. You will need to give your name and email address. It asks you for a topic and offers a drop-down menu. Please select COVID-19. It also asks for a subject. Please write Summer Overnight Camp. We are also including a sample message to the governor. You can copy and paste it or use your own.

Please have your emails submitted by Sunday Night, June 7th. The link is:
https://www.governor.ny.gov/content/governor-contact-form
.......................

To the Honorable Governor:

We appreciate all that you have been doing to keep the citizens of New York State safe. Under your guidance there were no Covid-related deaths in NYC on June 3 and the infection rates across the state keep dropping.
As a parent of an overnight camper, I am pleading with the Governor to allow overnight camps to open. My children have been home and isolated for so many months. They need camp desperately
We need to return to work soon. We cannot have our children home without  structure. Sunshine, fresh air and friendships cannot be replaced by Zoom programming and screen time. Our children NEED the structure of camp. There they learn teamwork, resiliency and connect with nature. Camp provides opportunities for socialization and bolsters emotional health.
Camp directors along with top infectious disease doctors have put protocols in place to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 in camp. Our children will be tested before camp and then quarantined in camp - where they will not infect their grandparents.
The safe and logical thing to do is to green light the opening of summer overnight camps right away. We will certainly show our appreciation to you!
Please let overnight camps open.

Cuomo said he is expecting more info on the Kawasaki virus this week and will make the decision on sleep away camps after he gets it

Information is constantly coming in. We already know Florida cases are reaching new highs, and unfortunately we'll probably have hospitalizations rising soon

He said Cuomo is just buying time, and I said there is a legitimate reason to wait for forthcoming new information

His timeline is nonsensical.

I'm well aware.

There is no sense in anything Cuomo or Murphy are doing.

I think we need to ban Twitter screenshots. Too many fake ones going around.
Link to the Tweet or don't post IMHO.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

NY Child care and Day camp Requirements
(This is not for sleep away camps)
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I don't care if my kids play blocks all day, they need to get out of the house. They need a change in environment. They need interaction. And we, need a break  :D
