According to CBS New York, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul has announced a new mask mandate requirement for all indoor public places that do not require the COVID-19 vaccination. This comes after the state reaching nearly 12,400 reported cases for the first time since the beginning of 2021.

This comes into effect starting Monday, December 13th and continues through January 15th. This now forces businesses such as live music venues and restaurants to make a tough decision to require a vaccination and allow things to continue normally or make everyone have to mask-up.

In a press conference, Hochul stated:

“The temporary measures I am taking today will help accomplish this through the holiday season…We shouldn’t have reached the point where we are confronted with a winter surge, especially with the vaccine at our disposal, and I share many New Yorkers’ frustration that we are not past this pandemic yet.”
