"The College Board will provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as feasible in place of canceled administrations," the College Board said. "We’ll be as flexible as possible to give students the best chance to show their skills and stay on the path to college. We have not yet canceled the June 6, 2020, SAT administration and will continue to assess its status with the health and safety of students and educators as our top priority. The College Board is working with local partners, and we’ll soon share information about weekday school-based administrations this spring of the SAT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9."

NYC schools closed on Monday. Also on Monday, N.J. Gov. Phil Murphy announced all schools -- including pre-K, K-12, university and colleges -- in the state will be closed, beginning Wednesday.
