BOSTON (CBS) – It’s been nearly two weeks since Boston Mayor Marty Walsh held an in-person coronavirus press briefing, which he had previously been holding several times per week. During that time Boston schools have paused in-person learning amid rising COVID-19 cases and the city announced trick-or-treating would proceed.

Walsh’s office told WBZ-TV the mayor has been working from home some days to make calls for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign. The mayor is not allowed to do campaign work while at City Hall.

He last held a press briefing on October 15. During that briefing, Walsh announced that the city will be “cracking down” on people violating coronavirus protocols amid an uptick of cases.

A Walsh spokesman said the mayor comes to City Hall some days during the week, and works on city government work when he is at home.

    He’s been very busy canceling school while letting everyone trick or treat and the 20-30 somethings continue to have parties and attend outdoor bar settings. Makes perfect sense. Then we will let all the colleges come back while all the BPS schools still are remote. Then we cancel sports because you know, BPS is remote. Helllllooooo they have been remote. They should have been back in September and then gone remote when cases ticked up. My family has done all the right things since early March and we are paying the price here while everyone whoops it up. Sick of this Marty.
