B, W, Z Subway Lines Suspended Due To COVID-Related Staffing Shortage

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Three New York City subway lines are suspended all week because of COVID-related staffing shortages.

The MTA says the B, W and Z lines are temporarily suspended.

"Like everyone in New York, we've been impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 surge," New York City Transit posted on Twitter. "These routes exclusively serve stations that have at least one other subway line available."

New York State reported a record number of cases Saturday.

Now, the latest numbers show daily positive cases dropped by 10,000 and hospitalizations fell by nearly 100 patients.
