Cuomo: State workers will have to get COVID vaccine, or submit to weekly testing

New York State employees will have to get the COVID-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing.

That was the message from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who said the policy is following suit with other states and the federal government. The federal policy will require employees of the U.S. government to be tested weekly, or get vaccinated.

Cuomo says the policy will be rolled out by the end of summer.

COVID-19 cases are rising again in New York, which has prompted renewed efforts to get people vaccinated.
