NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- Catholic schools in New York filed a lawsuit against the city's education department to make good on its mandate to provide coronavirus testing for students.
This as the department faces more legal action after Councilman Joseph Borelli filed an emergency order Friday to bring back in-person learning.
It is the state law for the DOE to offer the same health services to public and non-public schools.
