Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “New York Will Become the First U.S. City to Impose Covid-19 Vaccine Mandate on Businesses” – below is their description.
Mayor Bill de Blasio says all New York City employers will have to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for their workers by Dec. 27.
De Blasio said Monday that the new mandate is aimed at preventing a spike in coronavirus infections during the holiday season and the colder months. He called it a “preemptive strike” to “stop the further growth of COVID.”
Vaccinations are already required for city employees including teachers, police officers and firefighters, and a vaccination mandate for employees of private and religious schools was announced last week.
De Blasio said he expects the new mandate to survive any legal challenges.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
