Booster Mandate Issued for New York’s Public University Students
Gov. Kathy Hochul, New York, announced today that nearly 600,000.0 public university students will soon have to get booster shots because coronavirus cases continue to rise in the state.
As I said, we are expecting a plan, a surge after the holidays, it’s here and tonight, New Year’s Eve for everyone saying I cannot wait to say goodbye to 2021. They will be gathering. This is what we know. So what are you going to do? Why are we doing it 2.0 anyway? Because the virus is changing so quickly and we’re issuing new guidance the SUNY and Cuny schools for the spring semester. All schools are asked to ensure that students are boosted before they return. This will be part the reopening. They have to be boosted when they’re eligible again. Students who have not been vaccinated in the last six months will not be eligible for the booster. This will take effect January 15. It’s a continuation of policy we had for that. But also now we’re adding faculty, adding faculty to the list of individuals who will need to be vaccinated. We now know that the masks are important, they’re important line of defense. The state has a requirement that all businesses must have a mask requirement. A vaccine requirement will also be required. This requirement expires on January 15. I wanted to inform everyone that this will continue. We have two more weeks to go before we reach the goal. Again, we are open to reassessing the situation and hoping for a positive February. But again, we just don’t have that information right now, but this is another part of our 2.0 plan.
