New York Gov extends state indoor mask requirement

New York Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul has extended the state’s indoor mask mandate, claiming the move will help stop another shutdown.

The mandate requires indoor mask-wearing or checking a person’s vaccination status. On Friday, Hochul extended the policy until Feb. 1.

Hochul’s message also scolded the unvaccinated, pushing vaccinations for children as young as five years old.

The order also added the requirement of a booster shot for CUNY and SUNY students when they become available.

Despite the Draconian moves, New York’s daily average of cases was higher per capita on Monday than any state in the nation.

The moves have not been popular with many New Yorkers. The increasingly political motivations behind coronavirus restrictions are leading to demonstrations and political moves by conservatives to unseat the governor in the next election.
