NYS Coronavirus Update: Vaccination or Weekly Testing Mandate for State Employees

August 02, 2021 10:09 AM | Anonymous

Last week, the CDC released new guidance on mask wearing. The state is  reviewing the CDC's new recommendations closely in consultation with federal and state health experts.

As NY observes a rise in COVID cases and across the country, driven by the Delta variant, the State is taking new action to curb the spread.

To that end, by Labor Day, all state employees will be required to either get vaccinated or get tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis. This includes patient-facing healthcare workers at state-run hospitals - they will be required to get vaccinated for COVID-19 by Labor Day.
