New York Lifting COVID-19 Mandates Ahead of State of the Union Address


It appears New York Democrats received the Impact Research memo last week about COVID-19 mandates.

“It’s Time for Democrats to Take Credit for Ending the COVID Crisis Phase,” Says Democratic PR Firm Memo

Democrats were advised to declare the COVID crisis phase over and push for a feeling of normalcy.

On Sunday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul and NYC Mayor Eric Adams announced the lifting of mandates in the Empire State.

Gov. Hochul said the statewide school mask mandate would end on Wednesday, March 2nd.

Eric Adams announced New York City's indoor mask mandate for public school students would end on Monday, March 7th if their numbers continued to show a low level of risk.

Adams stated the city would also lift its proof of COVID-19 inoculation requirements for indoor venues, assuming there wasn't any surprises.

The New York Post reported:

Mask mandates in public schools across New York will be lifted this Wednesday, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Sunday — and she feels “confident” Big Apple Mayor Eric Adams will follow suit but said it’s ultimately up to him.

Speaking from Albany, Hochul said local governments would now be empowered to set their own school mask requirements in accordance with new guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Friday that reclassified much of the state as “low risk” for COVID infection.

“Given the decline in our rates, our hospitalizations, strong vaccination rates and the CDC guidance, we, friends, the day has come,” Hochul said. “Today we are going to be announcing that we’ll be lifting the statewide mask requirement in schools, and that’ll be effective this Wednesday, March 2.”

Hochul said she had spoken to Mayor Eric Adams and “feels confident” he will follow her lead and yank the city’s school mask requirement, but declined to speak on his behalf.

“My position is to empower the local governments to make the decisions for their entire county. But I’ve always said that if there are entities within and we’re going to whether it’s a city, a school district and school if they choose to be more restrictive. We will not prohibit that whatsoever,” she said.

Any New Yorker who thinks Hochul and Adams made this move to benefit their constituents is delusional.
