It’s time now to take a look ahead to this week to know what to keep on our radar.

On Monday, sports begin again in New York. In August, The head of the New York State Council of School Superintendents urged Governor Cuomo to cancel fall sports.

But Cuomo gave the green light for lower-risk sports to take place, including soccer, field hockey, cross county, tennis, and swimming.

They can begin practicing and then playing in all regions of the state starting Monday.

Looking ahead to this Tuesday. Its the deadline for New Yorkers to submit their certifications for the second round of emergency funding.

New Yorkers who qualified for the second round of L-W-A Benefits or who must submit their certification, must do so by 5 pm. They will be paid by the following week. And those who submit their certifications on a later date will be paid on a rolling basis. New York state will be retroactively paying Benefits starting next week.

The state has announced that they’ve paid over 44.5 Billion dollars in benefits during the pandemic through emergency funding. That’s more than 21 typical years worth of benefits in just six months. New York state labor department also announces nearly 1.9 billion dollars in lost wage, assistance paid to the New York State.
