BREAKING: NYC Mayor-Elect Eric Adams to Retain De Blasio’s Private Sector COVID-19 Jab Mandate


New York City Mayor-Elect Eric Adams (D) finally broke his silence about his COVID-19 protocols for the Big Apple on Thursday.

If there’s one way to describe it, ‘Mandates, Mandates, Mandates!’ The tyrannical COVID-19 jab mandates issued by Mayor De Blasio will continue under the Adams administration.

That includes the COVID-19 jab mandate on the private sector that went into effect on Monday. Employees of around 184,000 private businesses must show proof of COVID-19 inoculation to work in NYC.

The Adams administration will also consider expanding other current mandates wrecking medical tyranny on New Yorkers. They plan to make a later decision if the mandates will eventually require booster shots due to the rapidly spreading, but milder, omicron variant.

Per the New York Daily News:

The private sector mandate — first announced by Mayor de Blasio in early December — took effect Monday, and Adams has been evasive on whether he would keep the new rule in place once he takes over the reins at City Hall.

In a briefing with his health advisers Thursday morning, Adams finally confirmed he will keep the mandate, which covers workers at more than 184,000 businesses across the city, though he took a shot at de Blasio for doing the poor job at communicating the policy.

“If there was one critique, as I stated, I think that the mayor in the state of urgency which he faced, we could’ve all done a better job in communicating with our various stakeholders,” Adams said at Brooklyn Borough Hall.

Adams also said he does not want to take a “heavy-handed” approach in fining businesses who are refusing to comply.

Still, Adams said businesses owners who are flagrantly violating the rule can face fines.

“We will fine those businesses that are recklessly not complying and just refuse to do so,” said Adams, who’s set to be sworn in as the city’s next mayor in the wee hours Saturday.

Below are highlights from the Adams 2022 Winter Plan:

The plan calls for more child abuse in the New York City school system. NYC schools will continue masking children and force kids to take useless rapid at-home tests. The Adams administration will also consider recommending a Fall 2022 COVID-19 jab mandate for NYC school children.

Ultimately, the decision to mandate the COVID-19 jabs for New York public school children will come from Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced during a Tuesday press conference that the state will send 2 million at-home testing kits to schools. These tests can then be sent home with students if one of their classmates tests positive. Those who test negative using the kit will not have to quarantine.

The city will also increase the number of random coronavirus tests each school conducts. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated students will eligible to receive the random testing when school resumes next week after the holiday break. To ensure that an outbreak does not occur, students and staff are urged to get tested before going back to school.

“This is how we are going to look at schools from this point on, keep them safe and keep them open,” de Blasio said during the conference. He was joined by incoming mayor Eric Adams, who expressed support for the plan and will enforce it once he takes office on January 1.

“Two clear messages we’re sending loud and clear,” Adams said. “Your children are safer in school. The numbers speak for themselves. And we are united to make sure they continue to be safe.”

New York City’s public school system, the nation’s largest with about a million students, was one of the first in the nation to reopen to in-person learning after the pandemic hit in 2020, but frequent school or classroom closings due to coronavirus cases proved disruptive.

De Blasio urged parents to get all eligible children vaccinated against COVID-19, but vaccines are not mandated for city students, as they are for teachers and other municipal employees.
