Teachers and staff protest outside Franklin D. Roosevelt High School as they call for more and better COVID-19 testing and precautions on Friday in New York City. The ZIP codes listed on this sign are among those soon to face restrictions by the city.

Nine ZIP codes have seen persistently high rates of coronavirus infections. Mayor Bill de Blasio plans to close nonessential businesses and schools there Wednesday, pending state approval.
