The second #COVID19  wave is real and we MUST take it seriously. Here’s a look at today’s indicators: • 102 patients admitted to the hospital • 1,307 new cases • The infection rate 7-day average is 3.02%

I know we’re asking a lot when we ask you to stay home this Thanksgiving. It’s a sacrifice for all of us. But staying home doesn’t mean you can’t find a way to connect with your loved ones. Here’s Melba Wilson of @MelbasHarlem  with a recipe for a safe and happy holiday.

We are in the middle of a pandemic that is killing over a thousand of our fellow Americans a day. The transition needs to start NOW.

We’re continuing to see some real challenges in today’s #COVID19  indicators: • 121 patients admitted to the hospital • 1,394 new cases • The infection rate 7-day average is 3.09% The second wave is real. We can’t let up the fight now.

In February we had a record high 4.7 million jobs. It’s not ancient history, it’s 10 months ago. In the first months of this crisis we lost 900,000 jobs. We fought back, adding over 300,000 jobs. The stimulus worked. Washington has to pass another one. NOW.

Join me at City Hall for the latest on our plans to reopen @NYCSchools  buildings.

Reopening our @NYCSchools  buildings is paramount to recovering from #COVID19 . Today we can announce that we plan to reopen buildings for: • 3-K, Pre-K and grades K-5 on Monday, December 7 • District 75 schools at all grade levels on Thursday, December 10

Here’s some good news: We may be facing the highest number of #COVID19  cases we’ve seen since April, but our Test & Trace Corps is meeting the challenge. 95% of all positive cases have been reached by our team. This is how we fight back #COVID19 .

#COVID19 may be the biggest crisis we’ve ever faced — and testing is the solution. We're bringing in more than 20 additional testing sites across the city to make it even easier to get tested and fight back a second wave. Find locations:

In many ways, Christmas won’t look the same in 2020 — but some of our most cherished traditions aren’t going anywhere. Thank you to everyone working to make sure we have a safe and merry #ChristmasInRockefellerCenter !

@jairbolsonaro  if you want to barge into our city and brag about destroying our environment or how you’re a “proud homophobe” then New Yorkers are going to call you on your crap. If it’s “radical” to stand up against your destructive ideology, then we’re PROUD radicals.

Men who don’t like women taking up space are exactly why we need the Fearless Girl.

My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period.

Dear @POTUS , The ultimate city of immigrants just had its safest 3 months in modern history. Stop vilifying our people. Thanks, NYC

Mayor Sadiq Khan is doing an extraordinary job supporting Londoners in a time of pain. President Trump's attack on him is unacceptable.

Jair Bolsonaro is a dangerous man. His overt racism, homophobia and destructive decisions will have a devastating impact on the future of our planet. On behalf of our city, thank you to for canceling this event.

This morning we committed to move resources from the NYPD to youth and social services as part of our City’s budget. Our young people need to be reached, not policed. We can do this AND keep our city safe.

This week I told President-elect Trump that there are 900 Muslim Americans in the NYPD protecting us every day.

We warned you not to threaten our neighbors, @realDonaldTrump . New York City will fight to defend our Dreamers.
