Decision on reopening sleepaway camps is a week away, Gov. Cuomo says

A decision on when and whether to reopen sleepaway camps in New York will come next week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Thursday.

Cuomo said state health officials are “furiously” researching the rare Kawasaki-like inflammatory disease that has sickened more than 100 children in anticipation of green-lighting sleep-away camps this summer.

“We have to have a decision in about a week,” the governor told Jay Oliver on Long Island News Radio.

“I’m making that decision as if it were my daughter,” the dad of three daughters added. “Today, I would not be willing to send my daughter to sleep-away camp. If I’m not sending my daughter, I’m not going to tell you you can send your child.”

Day camps across the state are allowed to open June 29, though health guidelines have not yet been issued.
