New York Gov. Cuomo mandates COVID-19 vaccine or testing for transport workers



The agencies overseeing New York’s bridges, trains and seaports will require their workers to get the COVID-19 vaccine or get tested weekly starting next month amid rising cases of the Delta variant, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Monday.

Cuomo also told a briefing that he was urging bars, restaurants and other private businesses to consider requiring all customers be vaccinated before entering.

He also said that vaccines could become mandatory for nursing home workers and teachers if case numbers do not improve. He said they learned “a painful lesson” with nursing home deaths. “How did it get into the nursing homes? It came in with an aid,” he said Monday.

“If you want to teach my kids, I think you should be vaccinated,” Cuomo said, adding that schools should quickly formulate policies for teachers on vaccines and testing before schools reopen in the coming weeks.
