Nearly all NYC teachers say schools do not have proper safety plan: Poll

According to a new survey, almost all of the members of New York City's largest teacher's union are saying the city's COVID-19 protocols in schools are insufficient.

According to an internal poll by the United Federation of Teachers, 98% of the teachers surveyed said neither the Mayor nor the Department of Education has a proper safety plan in place, with 92% saying students are unable to maintain a three-foot distance throughout the day.

Another 89% of respondents said kids are not always following mask-wearing protocols.
