New York City health officials have ended its Covid-19 alert system that informed residents about periods of higher transmission of the virus. 

The change took place this week and visitors to the city’s website are now met with a message that reads: “We are evaluating the city’s COVID Alert system. Check back here for updates in the coming weeks.”
