Gov. Andrew Cuomo will mandate that front-line workers in New York state-run hospitals be vaccinated against COVID-19. All other state workers also have to be vaccinated or be subject to weekly testing.
As worries about the increasing Delta variant grow, New York City and the state of California announced Monday that government workers will have to get vaccinated or submit to weekly tests for the coronavirus.
Governor Andrew Cuomo, in his first public appearance since being questioned by the state Attorney General’s office on allegations of sexual harassment, cast doubt on the motives of the investigators, saying it’s likely that “politics” are involved.
