BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- The Binghamton City School District has pushed back in-person instruction until Oct. 26 due to elevated COVID-19 cases in Broome County.
The move will align the district with Governor Andrew Cuomo's 14-day New Cluster Action Initiative, which begins Oct. 9.
On Tuesday, Governor Cuomo declared parts of Broome County to be a "yellow zone."
School districts in the yellow zone are required to mandate weekly testing of students, teachers and staff for COVID-19.
However, according to the school district, the state has not provided details regarding the specifics of the testing.
