In just one day Kathy Hochul has already made some huge changes for the state of New York, attempting to steer the state in a specific direction after a summer of unknown for schools everywhere.
One of her first moves is a universal mask mandate for anyone inside of a school as well as a vaccine or weekly test out option “for now” for educators.
Getting children back to school safely is one of my highest priorities.
To that end, I am immediately directing the Department of Health to institute universal masking for anyone entering our schools.
