New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is begging citizens to return to New York City after more than a year of implementing some of the most stringent restrictions in the country, shattering thousands of businesses, many of which have been unable to recover from the economic turmoil.
Mayor Bill de Blasio called on private employers Friday to impose vaccination requirements as workers begin to head back to the office, as part of his latest bid to head off a surge in COVID cases driven by the more contagious Delta variant of the virus.
De Blasio’s remarks on WNYC came just two days after he imposed a mandate on employees of the city’s public hospital system and the Health Department’s community clinics to finally get vaccinated or face weekly coronavirus testing.
“We tried purely voluntary for over half a year. We tried every form of incentives,” he said during his weekly appearance on WNYC’s “The Brian Lehrer Show.” “But now we’ve got to go further, we’ve reached the limits of a purely voluntary system.”
Vax all, folks!
Music lovers planning to attend New York City’s star-studded concert in Central Park this August better come equipped with a COVID vaccination if they want to be admitted, Mayor de Blasio said Tuesday.
He rolled out the mandate at his morning press briefing Tuesday after talking up the We Love NYC Homecoming Concert last week when he left the question of vaccine requirements unanswered. On Tuesday, Hizzoner made the matter crystal clear.
