New York Mandates Covid 19 Vaccine

On August 16, outgoing Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an order requiring  all health care workers, including all staff at public and private hospitals, nursing homes and adult care facilities, to receive at least their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by September 27. The order includes limited exemptions for religious belief and medical issues. This order follows New York City’s mandate requiring health care workers to either get vaccinated or test weekly. Currently, around 25% of the more than 600,000 health care workers in New York remain unvaccinated.
