Questions loom about summer camps in New York

Summer camp during a pandemic seems like a challenge.

If nothing else, the long list of regulations and updates that Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State have laid out seem to be a roadblock for those running camps.

However, there has been hope that they could still happen. But with a new and potentially COVID-linked illness impacting children – with more than 100 cases being investigated in New York – even more questions loom.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo cast doubt on whether summer camps and day camps can be held this year during his press conference on Thursday.

“As a parent, until I know how widespread this, I would not send my child to day camp,” he said.

Camp organizers said outdoor activities are more important now than ever before. Special precautions will be taken to ensure safety of children and adhere to social distancing guidelines.
