In a wide-ranging press conference Monday, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh discussed the start of antibody testing in three communities, the city's efforts to provide food for residents in need and distance learning plans as schools remain closed.

Walsh said that Boston Public Schools has installed more than 2,100 wifi hotspots throughout the city and that the city continues to reach out to families to gauge their needs. He said Superintendent Brenda Casselius will be sending out information on attendance, grading and scheduling, and creating individualized learning plans for high-need students as it turns to phase two of distance learning — set to begin May 4.

The mayor also said that there has been a 57 percent increase in COVID-19 testing in some Boston neighborhoods.
